The Aquaria Water Museum is situated on Djurgården and you can easily be reached by tram (from Sergels torg), boat (from Slussen) or bus. The place is quite small but have a rain forest, a lot of aquariums with fishes, octopus, frogs and other animals. It also has a temporary exhibition (this time sea horses). The children love it and... More

We had the Stockholm Card and we decided to visit it even if we had already visited the aquarium in the Skansen museum. We were not impressed, the Skansen aquarium was much better.

This place is so pathetically small that you could see everything in around 5 minutes so where on earth the owners got the idea of spending 2 to 3 hours there is beyond me.Terrible waste of money and this place is NOT cheap. There really is extremely little to see so don't waste your time or money as there are... More

The collection of under water sea creatures is very less. Not worth the visit. You can get the same but more creatures and views in Skansen aquariet... Audio guide is not available with Stockholm card. Pay extra 30SEK. Not worth to add this in our tour plan.

This is not the newest aquaria, but I still think its a very nice place to to go. You can listen to al the sounds in the rainforest and feel how humid its in a place like that. Also there is a large number of fish and other animals to see. Can recommend this place

It's a really nice, small museum with plenty of diversity - it has 4 distinctly different areas - the rainforest, mangrove, ocean and coral reef. And most species are displayed in a way that you can get really up close and personal with them. I highly recommend to visit during feeding hours. It's really spectacular.

We visited here in Easter 2014 with our baby. Already before 10 o'clock when the place opens, there was a queue of families to get in. Despite the small entrance area, we managed to get in. There's a separate place for the strollers. The lockers require crown coins to work. The aquarium is small. There's a rainforest section, few bigger... More

Lovely little aquarium in an old wood building. Inside it is dark, warm and humid. One can sit up a few steps in the rainforest section and experience a day with changing light and weather (lightning and thunder). A place to visit for itself, not for its collections. The displays are well maintained and the cafe has a nice setting... More

Well with my girlfriend as part of a 4 day city break to Stockholm. Found the Aquarium on Djurgården whilst wondering about. I enjoyed the rainforest section and and larger tanks with Sharks, Stingrays & Piranhas in particular. There is also a lovely cafe at the end of the attraction that has breathtaking views of Stockholm harbour. After your visit... More
