The museum may seem to be located far from the city, but it can easily be reached by the Tunnelbana or bus. The building is magnificient and the entrance is free, but the biggest disappointment is the permanent exhibitions being pretty old fashioned or outdated....More

Children like to visit this museum because there is lots of all kinds of animals to been easily seen. However, some of those are made from plastic. The most liked part of the exhibition seemed to be the one which tells about a human being.

With its high-end shopping facilities and
Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely
the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will
find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings,
a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet
foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal
Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture.
At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect
