This museum of natural is like the most but they also have some unique collections. A rainy day would be perfect for a visit at this museum - situated in the outskirts of Slottskogen.

This museum reminds me of the one back at university in the biology department. It is mostly just stuffed animals, which grow boring after a while. Perhaps I would have felt more engaged if I could speak Swedish, but I ended up zipping round the museum instead, not learning anything.

It's a very cheap museum to visit - 40SEK gets you a year-long ticket for not only the Natural History museum but also the art museum and more. Also it is free for under 25s which is a bonus.

This museum was awesome - full of different kinds of animals from all over the world (the bird section was particularly impressive), and almost all of them in great condition and displayed in interesting ways. Most of the information is in Swedish, with just occasional bits in English, but it's not a big deal. The whale section wasn't so interesting, but there was enough in the rest of the museum to keep me happy for a few hours. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys natural history museums. Oh - and it's free for under-25s! Bonus!

I could never believe that such a museum could exist in a city other than a large capital of a country! Full of well-preserved specimens, it provides a number of thematic pathways (e.g. birds, reptiles, mammals etc.). We had a guided tour which allowed us to see even the labs of the museum and I can assure you that the stuff not only is friendly but takes its job really seriously! A gift shop is also available, along with a small and high-quality restaurant inside the museum,
