This was our second visit here - the last was two years ago. It was a wet day so understandably it was very busy, but well organised with hangers for wet coats and lockers for bags. The children loved visiting the Moomin rooms and the Pippi Longstocking house but the highlight is the Story Train, where you are taken over... More

We decided to go here because it's right next to the Vasa. Thought we would see something with Moomin (heard it's from local). But there were not much about this character, nor anything too interesting for adults. The train however is the most interesting part we thought. The miniatures are nicely created and very detailed! No pictures here though.

A must visit if you read Astrid Lindgren books as a kid! But you have to be familiar with her stories such as Madicken, Emil, Lionheart Brothers, and Ronya in order to appreciate the place. I'm 27 and I went there alone and I spent a wonderful 2-3 hours there. The food was also good and I love the cheery... More

We enjoyed a lot our trip to Stockholm, we went there with a 2 years old and a 8 months baby, and is amazing how they consider kids and family in general in that city... Junibaken was the place my daughter enjoyed the most, we spent a great day there with some many others families, 100% recommended!!

If you and your kids know the Astrid Lindgren characters, the mumins and other nordic tales you will love it. It's great fun for kids (and for some grown-ups as well) :)

This will be most enjoyable if you take children and or were brought up on Swedish children's books such as Pippy Longstocking. The "story train" is fun but will mean far more if you know something about the characters it visits. I was disappointed that there were very few Pippy moments but the kids around us all loved it.

it's a lovely museum for small children, full imersion in the world of Astrid Lindren's Fairytales, my children had great fun (6 and 8 yrs). You can have lunch inside the museum, which is not too expensive.

This is clearly for the very young at heart. If you have children under, let's say 8 years old, then this is a very good place to spend a few hours where there happiness becomes your own. If you lack children under, say, 8 years old, then you really will not appreciate this venue. I think it is as simple... More

The Musuem was great. The Story Train was amazing and they had put so much detail into Astrids stories sets.

The focus of the attraction is the trip around various modelled scenes from the Pippi stories; rather hackneyed and visually banal. Very knowledgeable children might find limited amusement from the trip..otherwise it's just a shop and a large play area. But the cafe is good!

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.
