When we visited in April, most of the buildings were not opened or manned (only two were) and that was very disappointing but we were able to stroll around the park and read the signage and look at the animals and old buildings. It's like...More

I visited on a hot weekday in mid-May, and many of the little shops were closed. By the end, I didn't care, since the whole place reminded me of Disneyland's Main Street--hokey and overpriced. The few shops that were open, that were supposed to have...More

This is one, if not the oldest “living” museums in the world. Based round recovered buildings from around the country, the museum depicts the recent history of the way Swedish people lived. Informative, entertaining, fun and exceptionally good value for money. There’s lots to see...More

We went to Skansen on a cold March morning. The park was not what I expected. The zoo is small but interesting and I think it is a valuable learning opportunity for children. The walk-through rain forest was neat. The few buildings that were open...More

located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city
center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as

Hi! I believe is less quest on the week days the mornings especially. Be sure you'll have plenty of time as the park is large. On the rainy days you will not enjoy the animals as they are hiding. Have a lovely time!

As Vivvancs says, you'll have to pay to get inside Skansen open-air museum but once inside, the Christmas market costs nothing extra besides the Skansen ticket.
