This is a good attraction and makes for a pleasant walk around the extensive grounds. I'd been some years back in June, when there was much more on offer by way of 'open' indoor exhibits. This time many of these were locked and unavailable, which was disappointing. Those we saw were good, especially the ones with attendants, but having been before I was aware of how much we were missing out on.
The Nordic Animals section was as good as ever and there's something so thrilling about being close to wolves and bears.
It's a good plan to take the funicular railway right to the top of the park, then to work one's way down, as there's a lot of walking involved here.
It's a worthwhile place, but it may be worth checking out how many exhibits are actually open and available to visit outside of high season before going there.

We had a really great time exploring this park! It's perfect for all ages, at every step there is something new and interesting to discover! In some houses there are people with traditional clothes doing day to day things the old fashion way (like ironing), there are also farm animals, wilde animals and especially nordic animals you can admire. It took us half a day to visit the entire place.

Huge open air museum with rebuilt houses from the last centuries of sweden. See how people used to live and work. Also has a small zoo and a great aquarium with infos about the Baltic Sea. Awesome view of the city.

Really nice place to visit to get to know about the swedish heritage. For all ages. It features parks with local animals, but also houses of former eras and people explaining about them

Skansen is a theme-less theme park. There is something for everyone. We were there on a beautiful sunny day and there were many locals there, many with children of all ages. There’s a zoo, an aquarium, and rides. What attracted us was the outdoor museum of Sweden in past centuries. There were old restored buildings of all kinds and people demonstrating crafts and trades of years gone by. It’s a worthwhile expenditure of time and money.

We visited Skansen because the living history aspect of it appealed to us. We saw buildings from various eras of Sweden's history, and we loved the wildlife area. The windmills and the recreated village near the entrance were also very interesting. We never did find the glass shop, and the cobblestoned street going down a hill was a bit of a challenge. Still, we enjoyed it, and the shop had beautiful tableware and other items.
