Skansen is the world's first open-air museum, founded in 1891. Here you can stroll through five centuries of Swedish history, from north to south, with a real sense of the past all around the historical buildings and dwellings, peopled by characters...more

This zoo is very good with all the nordic animals and there is a lot of fun for the kids to get really close to the animals and a small tivoli. They have moose, seals, lo, bears and goats to pet and big birds walkin...More
You need to spend at least a whole day here to experience Skansen. From stepping back in time to visit the historic buildings, including working trades such as glass blowing and the bakery (which was a favourite - I might add). Then continue to the...More
Oh, i so adore the local animals - more than any monkeys, lions or elephants. They have bears, lynxes, seals, wolves, wolverines, wild boar, moose, reindeer, domestic animals of several kinds. Also there is a lot of nature around, old Swedish country farm buildings and...More
Skansen is an incredible place with something for everyone. It is like a combination of a cultural park, open-air museum, aquarium, and zoo. There are houses that are replicas of the different areas of Sweden. We visited after the houses were closed, but it was...More
It was our first time in Stockholm and we arrived at Skansen after visiting two other museums that day. Because of this, we were unable to see the people in action at the historic buildings as that part was closing down for the day. We...More
I don't know what we expected, but this wasn't it. What we got was a collection of buildings with some having craftsmen doing their thing (e.g., making furniture, sewing, etc.). But there was no interaction with the visitors, which was very disappointing. Basically, it was...More
I absolutely loved my visit here! Seeing a working medieval village, with people in period dress, was very eye opening. It brought home how far we've advance technologically, but also showcased the sense of fulfillment that came from doing things in the old (and often,...More
This was such a wonderful museum to visit even without children, my husband and I got a two day pass and it was well worth it. If the weather is nice it is such a peaceful and beautiful place to walk around and learn as...More
I visited here in December on a cold and dark day but it was worth it. They had a few Christmas stalls and markets set up. I wasn't sure what to expect but really enjoyed it. Its a very different concept for a museum being...More
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as
an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.

Everything was open when we were there last week. There were performers at all the areas,workshops, houses , outside areas.
Maybe best to contact them direct if asking about end of August.
Enjoy- we certainly did.
Hi! I believe is less quest on the week days the mornings especially. Be sure you'll have plenty of time as the park is large. On the rainy days you will not enjoy the animals as they are hiding. Have a lovely time!
