Definitely worth a visit

The kids enjoyed the Tech museum very much. Lots of activities like drawing with your eyes etc. drew their attention. Well worth a visit.

There are many interesting objects, experiments and games to be tried. My 5 year olds enjoyed the "playground" where they tried their grip, reaction, dance moves, rowing and slalom skiing. Then there was the section where you could do puzzles, build your own city from soft blocks, draw with your eyes, try how loud you can scream or how well... More

Their yearly card is merely the equivalent of two visits which is quite cheap. If you have kids from two to teen-age years, it would be worth getting a yearly card. This place is full of toys and puzzles, and exhibits that challenge both the mind and body. The range of exhibits would suit most ages but if I'd simplify... More

We visited this science and technology museum with our family. Pretty nice place, though I think our 6 years old son liked the place most of us. But anyways a really nice place to visit with kids. Also actually pretty educating.

This is definitely a place to visit if you go to Stockholm with children (even without them). I would say it is good for kids 3-4 and up, but certainly kids 8 and up will probably take better advantage of most of the exhibitions. Do not miss "Megamind", it is fantastic, so many interactive things to do and super high... More

We were travelling 3 adults with 3 children - 7, 4 and 2 years. All of us enjoyed the visit. We spent several hours trying out old and new machines and technologies. The only minus is that most of the info is in Swedish only - no problem in general also for those, who do not read at all, but... More

The walk there, along the waterfront, was more interesting than the destination. An incoherent medley of objects is NOT a museum. Probably great for kids, but dull for this adult.

Sad to see such a poor execution of what could be an amazing experience. The facility is old, many activity stations are out of order and the whole experience is dated and behind today's best practice with museum experiences. Further, most of the facts and information is only in Swedish, which is not appropriate for a world class city like... More

We were expecting more interactive exhibits with an explanation of physical or technological background and "trick-your-mind" experiments too. Museum provides you with little insight in historical development of technologies, however, in my opinion, it is rather hectic. This museum is suitable for ca 10 YO kids who start to realise wonders of technology and are curious about do-it-yourself experiments and... More

The lower floors contain displays pertaining to the 100 most significant innovations as voted for by the Swedish public. This was nothing short of exceptional: very interesting and quite easy to see 1-2 hours disappearing as you wander through them. One thing I would highlight is that pale green text on a white background is almost illegible to those of... More

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighbourhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being 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 an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
