Junibacken... wow!? Travelling to Stockholm with our five year old, Junibacken was on the to do list. Our daughter was familiar with the Pippi Longstocking books and absolutely loved the larger than life Ville Villekulla. We were also pleasantly surprised with the restaurant - a bit overpriced sure but tasty Swedish fare and so convenient to have a place to... More

If you are traveling with small children, Junibacken is totally worth a visit. It´s no disneyland, but it does give a fun introduction to Swedish children´s literature, which in itself can be fascinating. The building is divided into several thematic play area which encourage simple, imaginitive play. Whether baking a cake in Pippi Longstocking´s house, walking up the walls, piloting... More

A great place to visit and I am not sure who enjoyed this more my grandkids or us. Both our grandkids love to read and this museum exhibits are geared to drive home the magic of reading. The story train was outstanding. The kids have a great place to play and have fun. There is also a bookshop that has... More

Our first time here, I'm a big fan of Astrid Lindgrens stories. The Story train was so nice and our toddler was totally enthralled. Story like playing areas and ok food. Perfect place to let little kids play, but not much for older kids 7+. Many interesting museums close by and beautiful seaside.

I was recently visiting Stockholm and, following a lovely visit to the Vasa Museum, decided to pop into Junibacken. As an art educator I am often interested in children's museums for their educational purposes. I was absolutely enchanted by this museum, which is good for kids - young and old! You will love the whimsical storybook ride.

Excellent activity for young kids. Especially those familiar with the works of Astrid Lindgren. Teens would be bored. Parents enjoy the cafeteria.

It is a very unique place. Intentionally for children - fairytales - but for adults who just want to relax and have fun too :-) Very original way of showing/ telling a fair. Very cosy place!
