I actually got disappointed myself, found the place crowded and limited BUT my kids had a great time, especially my daughter who knew all the characters, so it was worth the visit after all....

I was heartbroken not to see Moomintroll, Moominmamma or Little My. I remember watching an Austrial-Polish animated version of the Moomins in the 80s and really thought they were magical and weird. When we were in Junibacken, there weren't any Moomin's at all. NONE!!!! Pippi Longstocking's house was there too but obviously it was mobbed by about 2000 Swedish kids.... More

this is one of my favorite places in Stockholm. I have grown up with the books of Astride Lindgren and to see a place dedicated to her books was so special for me. I felt like I was Pippi Longstocking. If you are with your child in Stockholm this is a Must see - trust me you will go again... More

As we have purchased the Stockholm Pass we took the chance to visit Junibacken before the Vasa. Even without having children its very nice here. But for that short journey I would not pay the original entrance when having no kids.

It is so marvelous place to feel yourself like child again. The train was fantastic and the playground for children looks so charming.

A visit to Junibacken was one of the highlights of a 2 week trip around Scandinavia for my two children, a 3 year old boy and 5 year old girl. It is the part of our trip they talk about the most. They loved seeing Pippi Longstocking's house, playing in Moomin land, and riding the storybook train. It is a... More

This museum is beautifully located on Djurgården and is perfect for younger kids. Its a bonus if they are familiar with the characters in Astrid Lindgrens books but its not a must. Inside the museum is a story train that takes you thorugh some of Astrids best stories, it can be a bit scary for small kids. Take the train... More

It was pretty cool to see a children's museum inspired by Astrid Lingren. Our 5-year old son absolutely loved this museum, especially the fairytale land playset. There are three themed play areas in this museum, all were very impressive and well put together. This is not a good museum for children over 7, but perfect for the 4-6 year crowd.... More

We took our 4 year old on a rainy summer morning and had the best time. The playrooms were very high quality, engaging and stimulating for him and all the children had fun playing and sharing. The highlight was the super well designed train ride - our son wanted to go twice. 2 hours flew by and made a great... More

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighborhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
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.
