    You don't have to pay for a lot of museums here in Stockholm, but this one isn't free. And this is within reason, because it's a great location to spend some hours while you're here. It's a combination between a small zoo (with a lynx, bears, moose...) And an reenactment of old times, complete with authentic houses and people who are dressed and offer insight on the lives of people who lived 100 years ago. This place is really great. It's open air, so I would recommend going on a sunny day to get the most out of it. Great place to go with children!

    A beautiful family destination to explore the oldest open museum and to know the roots of Swedish culture and history. For whom living in Stockholm, would be great to take the yearly card which will allow to attend all seasonal events.

    Great open-air museum with reasonable prices. The vintage village and its different houses are interesting and scenic to walk around. The aquarium was free and a cool addition. The terrarium would have been additionally 140kr to visit, so we skipped that one. You can see alot of Scandinavia based animals.

    Awesome museum. You can see local animals and old buildings. It's good for nice weather.

    Skansen is a 300.000 square meters open air museum and zoo created in 1891 by Artur Hazelius. The main type of attractions are wild and farm animals (seal, reindeer, bison...), wooden buildings that recreate the villages atmosphere of 19th century Sweden and the Baltic Sea Science Center. This place is a paradise for children, but of course it can be visited by adults too. The ticket costs 160 SEK and the visit can last several hours if one wants to stroll through the whole park.

    Nice area to walk. Bit disappointing that in winter there was a reduced offering which is not clearly announced and entrance price is not reduced. Not clear what is open to eat/drink so end up walking long to find parts closed. Saw limited animals, as there was cleaning actions as well. Side entrance closed as well so had to walk around again. But still nice place to visit.

    It was great place to get familiarise with the Swedish culture. Good for families. Enjoyed watching glass blowing workshop and zoo.

    Weak; low value. Slightly better than a walk through an old Stockholm neighborhood but with some animals & a price tag of 160 kr. It could be cool if you’re with kids, but I’d skip if short on time. Note: we visited during winter time on a cold, cloudy day.
