This is a marvellous place to take young children of 5years to 15 years of age. The so-called Jungle experience is incredible, where you can physically experience the humidity,heat, storm,rain thunder and lightning and at the same time be very close to living fish. Our grandchildren wanted to go back several times. Then there are the fish tanks, with sharks,and... More

Aquarium at Djurgården. Fun for the kids. But this museum is not very big. You walk through it fast and quite expensive.

small but lovely museum, perfect for small children. It is small so children dont get too overwhelmed, and it is designed for young guests so they can see close up of different habitats and fish. Lovely restaurant and cafe that faces the water. A must see while in Stockholm. Also close to Grona Lund, so one can plan a trip... More

A bit of the tropics, and many exotic fish. Come and discover all the cool animals and fish that live in our aquariums. For children a fun and educational place.

The aquarium is on the smallish side, but the tanks are arranged nicely and the kids will love the tunnel to see the sharks. The cafe only has a small selection of cakes, sweets and ice cream. No big meals available. Stunning view on Stockholm's water front. Only three toilets available. They are quire smelly and not very clean. 100... More

The aquarium as such is ok, with various fish of tropical waters, but what steels the show is the story of the salmon. The breeding and of course the salmon steps. How on earth do they find such a small opening? And then also climb the stairs? Marvellous. Well displayed and most informative. Cafeteria is ok too. Nice cinnamon buns.

I don't know if we were unlucky when going to this museum or not. There were almost nothing there. It ook us 15 minutes to finish the aquerium and that includes buying icecream at the kiosk inside. We saw no sea horses. Would not recomend

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.
