Scandinavia’s largest center for science, Universeum presents six major interactive exhibits specifically geared toward children and young adults. Since this public center opened in 2001, it has offered a number of opportunities to foreign visitors and Swedish students, including the chance to debate with Nobel Prize winners and professors. Its seven floors boast various sections focused on different aspects of science, from crime investigation to rainforest ecosystems and Swedish marine life. The site is known for its massive aquariums and the hand-on experiments throughout the museum.

Cool rainforest and aquarium area. Well done. Adult food was good and nicely presented. Kids food, extremly slow and unhygenic served. Meatballs picked by hand, the same hand handeling receipts etc..... more

Very good museum. Several attractions for children. Lots of educational activities. Well served of clean toilets. Available space for those who have children and need space to eat a fast lunch. There are plenty of tables to eat. There is a restaurant in the second floor.
I'd give this place fours stars just because when I visited the area focused on the scandinavian ecosystem was under renovation. This is a great science museum mostly for kids, although adults also can have a fun time here. The main part is probably the rain forest and my favorite animal was the sloth, so cute. In the aquarium you can fin lost of sharks. A great option to visit during winter.
