Don't expect rides or anything, the sets are made for children to play using their imagination. The sets are made according to the most famous Swedish (some foreign) children's books. It's a great place to take small children for a couple of hours. The restaurant is well priced and offers Swedish dishes, however during lunch time it might be hard... More

This place is very good for children. Not very much to do there for parents. The best thing in Junibacken is the "Storytrain"

It is only something for families with small children. There is nothing for adults to do while the kids are playing.

The train journey inside was very well thought out and the models were really effective, a must do if you have little ones in Stockholm.

I just loved Junibacken! Fairytale Train rides you and your kids to Astrid Lindgrens stories, which I knew from my own childhood. The place is very well executed and suites for small children. I suppose that about 3-5 year olds are the target group. There are also places to play and there is also some theatre and musicperformances. Restaurant offers... More

I've been to Junibacken with my girls twice. The other time it wasn't quite as much fun, as the place was really crowded for some reason (the kids didn't mind it, but I found it to be quite a task to keep track of three kids, the youngest being only two years old, with so many people), but the other...

You won´t believe how one can transfer a single building into many small stages and connect them via little train/lift that elevates and turns through the stages while a lovely but sad story is played from the speakers. Your little one will enjoy a great indoor playground at the end of the ride and you can spoil your taste buds... More

We did not have the kids museum included in the program, but it was one of the most funniest and lovly museum in Stockholm. Get ready for lot of kids and their parents waiting and shooting them with each model of the fairy character or the miniature fairy houses and vehicles. I bet you will enjoy fairy fabolous cable car/train... More

I loved the story train. The setting is beautiful and the story as well. The ticket is expensive though. Would recommend for everyone who loves Astrid Lindgren and children books :D
