  • Starting from the exposition, through the 3D cinema, to the canteens, where you can eat your own perfect meal. In fact, there is nothing to attach to. Paths and fun for the youngest-certainly will not be bored. The exhibits are impressive. In addition free?!

  • Great place to learn a bit about natural history, the massive screen movie about the Earth (4 movies to choose from, tickets need to be purchased separately) is a must. Also, a nice café on site.  more »

  • If you want to cover all of the permanent and temporary exhibitions, you will have to set aside the best part of a day... The museum is impressive. When we visited, the photos of the latest (2018) contest of Wildlife Photographer of the Year were on show with winners and runners-up in the various categories. An amazing array of shots. The exhibition on Swedish fauna, however, is really the main attraction, with some taxidermy masterpieces on show. The life-like impression is breathtaking.
  • Great place to visit. The building itself from the outside is already nice and you can go in for free! They have a impressive collection and there is also a movie theatre. For that part you have to pay, but it was worth it. We had lunch here and that was good too.
