We are from Thailand, and knew nothing about Pippi or Swedish local stories, but me and my 7 year-old had a memorable fun time there, especially the train ride where you learn about the stories through the beautiful settings and the audio which you could choose the language. I think I was even more mesmerized by the ride than my... More

I think this venue would make much more sense to local kids who have grown up with the stories and characters that are profiled here. I thought the venue was a bit tired and there wasn't really much to play with. My 3-year old got bored pretty quickly. They have a story train which was pretty good - but again,... More

As a kid growing up in America in the 70's/80's, Pippi Longstocking was a huge deal. I was thrilled when I heard about the Junibacken and made it the #1 thing that I wanted to see in Stockholm. Luckily, I have two small step-children ( 5 & 7) happy to help out. Admittedly, the Junibacken was not what I was... More

This is our 3rd visit and it remains one of my all time favourite places for old and young alike. if you don't know the works of Astrid Lindgren don't be put off, you will learn loads here. The play areas are just exceptional and the ride through the stories of Astrid Lindgren quite simply one of the best in... More

Kids get crazy in that amazing place! It's also very nice and relaxing for adults too. Make sure you take the train ride that narrates the fairytale. It's very dreamy :)

The museum is dedicated to scandinavian fairy tails. First you step into several rooms with nice decorations to different stories - children can touch everything, play around, climb whatever they want. But the real surprise is a train which brings you through mini version of the stories. I'm not a child but I was really delighted. Our child is too... More

This place is build around stories of Astrid Lindgren - they have 2 rooms themed around different books where children could go inside mini building and so on. But the main attraction is "train" that takes them over recreated events from Astrid Lindgren books with audio dialog - it's truly awesome experience. Ticket prices are on high end - entrance...

Suitable for kids under 10 years, probably. However for the grown ups train is a fabulous surprise and visit to the fairytale.

My husband and I felt a little weird going without a kid, but after I saw pictures I really wanted to go. I'm glad we did. There's a "train ride," which is pretty fantastic. There are a bunch of play areas that tie into the story told during the train ride. I'm sure the kids will love it. As an... More
