I found the museum to be really entertaining and instructive. I really loved that there are lots of games for children to learn about nature. I also found really interesting the sector dedicated to the Swedish fauna.

It's free! The taxidermy in the dioramas is unusually good, and the dioramas are thoughtful and incorporate lots of fun details that are often overlooked, such as insect life. A lot of the labels are Swedish-only, which can be limiting for tourists. It's a fairly...More
