Worth going to see the Blue whale. Otherwise, a pretty average museum. Alot of the information is only in Swedish which can make it hard if you don't know the language. They seemed to have a good collection of things from all over the world.

It is a must see museum. I recently came back from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, but did not see any sloths....but I was able to capture amazing very well awake slots climbing up the trees, with an exact tropical climate in that museum.

Seems like a great museum if you're into natural history, botany, zoology, etc. If you're like me and you enjoy quirky stuff you can't see just anywhere, you have to go! Skip the 'boring' stuff and follow the signs to the Blue Whale. Yes. Seriously....More
