When travelled to Stockholm, Junibacken was on my top of mind because I am a big fan of Astrid Lindgren, a well known Swedish author and I read all her books and who doesn't know the famous Pippi Longstocking? I visited Junibacken on Summer and the weather was lovely. The long line to take the train inside Junibacken was really... More

We went high season at a rainy day (now I understand why this was not a smart idea...)..... Arrived 20 min after they opened - we waited 30 min in line in the rain to get in.... Our 4 year old loved it... There are no words on how much she loved it.... it was soooo great.... all the other... More

This is a very popular place with both tourists and locals. Any children familiar with the works of Astrid Lindgren will love this museum. There is a lot of hands-on exhibits so maybe the term 'museum' may actually be a bit misleading. Do make sure that you get tickets for the fairy tale ride which is really the centre of... More

It was my idea (from Australia) to take my son and his daughters 3 and 5 (who live in Stockholm) to this children's fun place. I was warned it was expensive and cost 596SEK ($A95). Unfortunately the day was raining and every parent was looking for an indoor attraction, so the queue to enter was very long. You can't take... More

For families with kids it interesting to take the ride, but parents probably have to tell more stories before, then its more interesting. Go early in the morning, then its not crowded yet...

We went to this museum last year and it was very busy, and sometimes there can be a wait, but overall it was very good, we went back this year and the crouds was not as busy, it is well worth a visit

We spent a few days in Stockholm and with our five year son, Junibacken was absolutely one of the attractions to visit. First the queue is pretty long, but that's normal in the middle of the summer in Sweden. The price is rather high, compared to what's available. The first room, while waiting for the story train, the kids can... More

The train ride is the main attraction and we had about a 2 hour wait before our time to board the train. It was a busy rainy day which made it difficult for our 2 kids to really enjoy all the play areas. I'd highly recommend it during off peak times. If you don't like crowds you'll want to avoid...

its nicely set up and great for kids. but the price is not quite worth it. after all it is kind of like a play ground with different themes. I don't see any reason for them to charge entry for adults.

Contrary to how Junibacken describes itself, this is not an informative or even fun attraction based on Astrid Lindgren's novels. It is instead an expensive indoor playground overrun with screeching three-year-olds. The building is too small for the number of hyperactive toddlers running amok. If you have an older child who wants to explore the world of Astrid Lindgren, this... More
