The museum is amazing. The exhibitions are interesting. I loved the Polar section, the blue whale skeletons, minerals. It is good for school kids to see the practical information on many subjects. The building is really beautiful and photogenic. Admission is free.

I would recommend this attraction for families who want t get their children interested in the nature, animals and exploration. It takes a couple of hours to make the tour but since there a lot of interaction the time flies in there.

The museum is extensive and free, with plenty of interesting exhibits to explore. There is a lot of English text throughout the museum for international travellers. The Imax dome screen was an interesting experience, but try sitting farther back. We were too far forward and...More

The building is built beautifully and is worth going to see from the outside. The museum is free to enter and contains natural history of Sweden.

The museum is free, the cinema is not, but I highly recommend it, especially if you've never seen an IMAX movie. English dubbing is available via earphones, when asked for (free of charge). The museum looks small at first glance, but it turns out it...More

With its high-end shopping facilities and
Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely
the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will
find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings,
a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet
foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal
Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture.
