Perfect toddler morning - but get there 30 mins prior to opening!!

HUGE LINES. We arrived at 930 for a 10am opening and I wouldn't have wanted to get there any later. Husband lined up while the 21mo and I wandered the grounds. There is a creek... read more

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

We were here in August. First we stood in the queue for more than 30min just to get tickets in, and then were told the waiting time for the train inside was 2,5hrs The place was too crowded for the size of it. My 5 and 7 yo got quite bored so it might suit for younger children. The story... More

We took our 2.5 year old with another family who had slightly older kids. All 3 got scared on the train ride that was very "dark" with dragons, giant rats and stories of people jumping out of windows - if we had known we wouldn't have gone on the ride. The whole place is cramped, they really need more space,... More

HUGE LINES. We arrived at 930 for a 10am opening and I wouldn't have wanted to get there any later. Husband lined up while the 21mo and I wandered the grounds. There is a creek with fishing pole to play with while you wait. The first 30mins that we were there was perfect - it had just opened, wasn't that... More

This place is only for those who love the writings of Astrid Lindgren. It is very expensive for what you get. But if your children love her characters it might be memorable for them....

Packed with kids and their parents. The first area Sagotorget is too small for squirming masses, but Sagotåget (tge train) is good. Even our 1-year-old sat still in the train. In case you are not familiar with Astrid Lindgren's stories, it might not be as interesting as it was for us. Mumin area was not so good, since it was... More

This is a place for children! A lovely tour with a small train in Astrid Lindgren world, lots of space to play and always a new large exhibitions you actually are allowed to play in/with. The restaurant serves swedish traditional food with great taste, and has a special selection that caters for small children. A lovely selection of cakes and... More

For some reason I love miniatures and there is a wonderful ride here. But I am not sure that it is very exciting for kids and it is not cheap. So go if you have run out of options on a rainy day but I would not put it in as a high priority

If you have children under seven this is a must. Yes it's pricey and you need to get there for 10am to avoid long ques we all loved it and the story train is so lovely my two girls loved it.

Junibacken is really nice to look at - beautifully styled and evokes memories of childhood stories. However, it is a busy place and the kids are crammed into a fairly small area with a lot of things they can only pretend to use as so many of the props are glued down. It was okay, but our kids have had... More
