Beautiful museum indeed. I saw few of its kind, this is not the best, but surely not the worst. The 3D movies projected in the spheric cinema are absolutely stunning. Worth the price of the ticket, I recommend them especially to families with children. Try just not to fall asleep.. the sits are so soft and relaxing and confortable..zzz..zzz..

Tons of interactive activities, guides showing exhibitions with a great (dinosaur) story. Wonderful exhibitions on the grand Swedish natural surroundings and ecological history. Great for a day or a part of the day. So much to see and do. The kids love it.

Museum would be more interesting if we could find more interactive activities and tell about expositions in more modern ways.

We took our grandchildren here for an afternoon. They have been there twice before but wanted to visit again. This illustrates that it must be both interesting and entertaining. We all enjoyed the visit. Unfortunately when we stopped for refreshments in the restaurant, we were shortchanged by 50kr. I ponted this out and was swiftly given the missing money. Deliberate...

Another great place to visit when you are in Stockholm, especially with kids. A lot of fun and interesting exhibitions all year round, plus 3D cinema with movies about world and nature.

They really try to tell you about Swedish history and culture. The Sami exhibit was thoughtful and thought provoking. Building is a cool piece of architecture. Close to other attractions like ABBA and Vasa museum. Some nice restaurants across the street into the park.

Grate museum to get to know Swedish history. Large galleries, well planned and lit with grate amount of information. There is a good café with food at the first floor. If you´re lucky you can experience some live dancing show or concert by the café.

During my last trip to Stockholm me & my friends decided to get cultured & decided to swing by this museum for the day! It was a fun day out which we topped off with a 4D viewing on comets! There is a lot of walking involved as the museum is deceptively quite large, but it was fun regardless. Note... More

In this historic building on the campus of the University of Stockholm is an incredible natural history museum with two levels of exhibits devoted to Swedish wildlife, gems/minerals, health, the Arctic and more. There is also an IMAX theatre showing movies. Admission is very affordable although IMAX is more. Most exhibits are in Swedish and English. There is a restaurant... More

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighborhood Profile
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
