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.
