I visited alone on a Sunday just as they opened. This meant that it was relatively quiet and I could view the tanks / information / displays leisurely. If you were to go at a... read more

I spent good time there with my family. It's nice place and many good impressions are guarantied! There is enough to see not only for kids but for adults too. Free to take pictures and have good memories!

Nice aquarium! Small enough but many things to see! Fun to walk in rainforest. Jellyfishes were the most interesting thing to see! Sea horses were also nice. And there is a place where children can go into the tunnel and the fishes will swim above, under and around.

I highly recommend visiting this aquarium. Yes, it is small but the selection of fish is equal to that of a larger aquarium. It is a good place for children as well as adults who enjoy fish.

Maybe we have been spoilt by The Deep, at Hull, but this aquarium literally took me and the 2 children less than an hour to walk through. It wasn't too expensive though. The best bit was the first rain forest section - so don't rush through it! The exit brings you out round the back near the bins, it's all... More

We wanted to spend some time before going to see the ABBA museum which is around the corner. We thought this aquarium would be a nice and relaxed place where to spend a couple of hours, but we were wrong. The visit lasted barely half an hour. Immediately we arrived to a cafeteria that meant the visit was over. The... More

It was much smaller then I had expected. They have a rainforest walk with fish frogs from the amazons. Then there is one big aquarium with some sharks and stingrays and a lot of different fishes. A coral/reef exhibition and a small part about the fishes in Sweden/Nordic countries.

It starts well with a nice first room with a tropical rain forest, impressive. After that it is finished though, nothing much more. The salmon exposition is very limited too. All in all nothing special, considering also the entrance fee.

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.
