The area
Address
Neighborhood: Östermalm
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.

I have seen a fair share of Natural History Museums and this was no different from others. Don't get me wrong, building was fabulous and exhibition was versatile. There was a lot for the kids, very educational. But I was more into the documentary in Cosmonova theatre. Superpower dogs was a good movie.

The museum is nice and there is a lot to see. However it was very noisy and a lot of kids running around like crazy, felt more like a kindergarten. If you like that this place is perfect. If you don't, skip it. Unfortunate that it's only for families with small kids.

Really good displays and highly interactive... We had trouble persuading our five year old to move onto the next activity! We particularly liked the Swedish nature area. A great day out and the real bonus is that this museum is free!

I do not know how many times we have been here - many!! So much to experience: Humans history, nordic nature, the human body, dinosaurs, geology, the global warming - and of course the 3D cinema. Everything presented in a way that suits children and make them curious about learning more. A big recommendation for both adults, with or without children.

The restaurant have some good food.

It's a very good natural history museum but not as good as others. It's large and better seen when your feet don't hurt as much.

This museum is a great place for the whole family. It has different interesting locations for children, they can get the idea about human body, nature, flora and fauna. The museum is a bit far from city center, but it's worth visiting.

If you want to see whole museum come at 10 in the morning. It is very huge place with various atractions. You can see prehistoric dinosaurs, various animals, many interactive games which can occupy you whole day. Tip: use free map to find what you are looking for.
