Back by popular demand for the 4th time, this is place just keeps on giving! We were visiting Stockholm for 5 days so I asked my son were he would like to go, He's 12 but I was secretly pleased when he requested Junibacken. He still loves all the things there, the shows, the ride, the books, and now even... More

Nice to visit Junibacken. Downside - too long queues even early morning around opening time. If your kids don't love all of Lindgren's stories, don't bother. This is for very young children. Food was AWFUL!! Fish dish was so dry!!! They served it without sauce. Instead it had a cottage cheese with some taste added. Double yuck!!! Great disappointment. Shape... More

It's a museum for small kids, there is a puppet show as well but which unfortunately for us was in Swedish and not English so my son could not understand at all, otherwise it's a nice informative place for kids,there is a story telling session in which you sit on a slide and it moves through different place narrating the...

Great backgrounds for play especially for kids from 2 to 8 years. Older will also enjoy but the visit may be shorter. Lot of details, well done.

The rooms are set up for kids, so great if you have young children. The train is not to be missed by adults who love to read. Great restaurant with quick service and lunch specials.

Lined up for buying tickets to get in but have to wait 2hrs to see main inside. So packed with small infant and children. Recommend for age 3-8. My two boys are 7/9yrs. I think for 9yrs is little too young for that. To take story telling train is great even though we don't know the story. Restaurant food is... More

This place is a heaven for anyone who - like my son - loves Pippi and other Lindgren's characters. We had a difficult time convincing him to leave after a couple of hours. I loved the train ride through Lindgren's various stories (admitedly, that was more apropriate for older children and adults than for four-year-olds). The only disappointment was that... More

Children’s museum Junibacken located on lush Djurgården island. It is totally for kids. As I travelled alone, I did not enter inside the museum. I had look from outside and seen how children enjoyed the museum. And this is just one part of the overall experience that is Junibacken – one of the largest children’s theaters in Sweden.

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.
