Nice little museum, well designed but quite too expensive for the size. Also the wifi for the audioguide app is not working properly.

The museum about the life of Astrid Lindgren is great. It tells a lot about her early life in sweden, how she became a children book author and about her later life in sweden's society. I recommend to book the tour to the childhood house.

German Kids grew up with storys of Astrid Lindgren. If you go to this place: You are a child again! You can see all about Astris Live and also see the early home of her.

We really enjoyed our visit here, the museum is well set out and very interesting (even my husband commented how good it was). I am so inspired by the woman Ingrid Lindgren was and am so glad I visited.
