I visit the Museum and I have to admit that the most interesting aspect is the architecture of the museum. The exposition is rich but more addressed to modern than old "things". It's interesting and it's for sure a nice museum to see, but in case of sunny day I would spend the time somewhere else or in others museums... More

An average natural history museum. Larger, but in my opinion not as good as the one in Gothenburg. More aimed at children.

Nice place for people of all ages, specially curious kids who likes asking questions about Nature and inhabitants of past and present. The museum has good facility of toilets and restaurant and in walking distance from Universitetet Metro station. Overall its great place to visit, specially with kids.

If you want to see the flora and fauna of Scandinavia as well as understand your body and climate, this place is an amazing way to do so. If you have been to London's natural history museum, this one will not be a surprise for you but it is cheap and has some interesting exhibitions.

It's free! The taxidermy in the dioramas is unusually good, and the dioramas are thoughtful and incorporate lots of fun details that are often overlooked, such as insect life. A lot of the labels are Swedish-only, which can be limiting for tourists. It's a fairly typical, decent natural history museum - nothing ground-breakingly amazing, but well-done and a reasonable place... More

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighborhood Profile
Ostermalm
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.
