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.

A very good way to spend a nice weather day. It was interesting to see the older buildings and what life would have been like before the industrial revolution changed things.

When we entered skansen we had the option of going up by a light railway which was a nice touch. Skansen has mixture of different types of historical buildings such as farmhouses, grocery stores, schools, pharmacies, bakeries and workshops. Many of the buildings had guides who were available to ask questions about the buildings. Skansen gave a good insight into Swedish history and how people lived in the past. Skansen was a good attraction as it had a zoo and history museum together. Skansen is on an elevated position which gives good views of Stockholm which was useful for taking photos.

We visited in late March and there was still some ice in the animal enclosures; not all of the buildings were open. The park itself is beautiful with a lot of workshops making traditional goods. There was only a guide in one of the buildings and she was very informative, but it would have been nice to have guides in more if the buildings giving the history and a flavour of life at the time. Similarly there were craftsmen in some of the workshops but there was no interaction between them & the visitors. I would definitely go back again, probably in the summer but it is a beautiful place & a great insight into the Scandinavian heritage and culture.

But the closing time of 5 pm is horrible. We are here for some exchanges with our partners and if you stop working and it’s 2 you will be there ( the lucky version ) at 3 pm but unfortunately all buildings close at 5 - all in all a wonderful place
