    Really fun and informative museum. Well designed in a way both children and adults can enjoy. Really cool to see historical/ancient history, animals from all over the world, as well as the exhibit focusing on the nature in Sweden specifically. Huge collection of taxidermy birds (definitely a must see if you’re an enthusiast)! Went on a Sunday and it was quite busy with lots of children and families. Something to keep in mind when planing your visit if you’re trying to avoid crowds.

    Beautiful! The Swedish Royal Museum of Natural History, founded in 1819 by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. As of 2014 it was the largest museum building in Sweden. A great collection of artifacts spread out across many areas, a nice place to spend half a day. Suitable for families with children. It also hosts an IMAX theater with paid shows. Museum is free to enter.

    A perfect place to spend a day with children where learning and fun go hand in hand.... My 6 year son loves this place a lot. We have already visited this museum twice in less than a years period and still looking forward to visit, each time learning something new.... Their IMAX theatre, cosmonova was a great experience and is worth trying. The entrance to the museum is free but Cosmonova charges fee. The museum is well organized and they have interactive displays both in swedish and english.

    We spent four hours here with a 4-year old. This is a great museum for those interested in animals, nature and dinosaurs. The museum is well run and very nicely organized. The displays had interactive screens with information which engage the younger clientele I am sure. The high lights included the sleeping Dino ( can’t spell it), the tyrannosaurus skeleton and the gardens with the urban gardening exhibition. I also thought the gift shop was nice; a good selection for all ages.

    An amazing museum that is well worth a visit. While there are a lot of things to look at and many exhibitions ongoing, it’s the dino skeletons that is the main attraction. They’re big and a kid in the right age span will love it. Make sure to pick a good time to visit though. It can sometimes be crowded with hundreds of kids from a bunch of schools. You’ll be zigzagging between them to go from one room to the next.
