I guess if you've been to so many zoos and so many animal parks in the US, visiting this place might disappoint. But my kids still like being able to explore and seeing the animals taking a break from watching the football matches we were in Gothenburg for. There is a dinosaur display and there are some rainforest walk thrus. Some interesting tropical birds. The aquarium is tired looking and is in need of more interesting fish. Some displays have stuffed snake. Sorry but that's just a no-no

Very interesting science centre with a little bit of everything, animals, aquarium, science stuff, in short awesome but maybe a bit overpriced.

It works to push a baby carriage around, even though it is a lot of elevation.
A lot of restrooms spread out.
Great gift shop for all ages.

Third visit and we enjoy it every time.

Expensive café.

Absolutely loved the set-up.
Swedish wildlife,sharks,snakes, nocturnal animals,etc.
One of the highlights is indeed the rainforest, several walk-through floors with plants and animals ( cheeky monkeys ! ), beautifully crafted and maintained.
For children there is a crime lab, space and, other science bits and a whole floor of interactive models and puzzles and other activities.

The museum was fun and interesting. The best part was the rainforest. There were some sections, particularly the criminal forensics that needed to be remodeled because the interactive sites were broken or missing pieces.
