Universeum, the place to go to make your kids happy. There are many variety of fishes and tropical birds and animals. There are also few sections dedicated to space and science. Plan as it takes most of the day if you plan to visit in leisure. The places also has restaurant on the top and the bottom floor, but has very small selection of food. One of the restaurant is also seasonal. There are a few kids playing area as well.
Enjoyed my time here, lots to see and a really cool gift shop. It's a great place to go to if you want to eat out. I do love my trips to Sweden.
