Traveling with children is fun, but it can also be difficult if you do not have some special activities in mind for them. That’s why, for everyone to enjoy family vacations, I will tell you what to do in Stockholm with Children.
Tekniska museet / MegaMind
The National Museum of Science and Technology has designed a special place for curious children, where they get motivated to experiment with the 5 senses. The MegaMind facilities are based for the human brain and will allow the kids to discover how to train the brain to further enhance their ingenuity.
The museum is completely interactive, so you will see children running and touching everything without having to worry about what they might break.
Definitely an original and fun museum designed to stimulate the creative thinking. They will be able to see, among other things, how the world looks through a pair of cat eyes, make music with the whole body and even paint with the eyes.
The museum is open every day of the week from 10 am to 5 pm, and Wednesdays until 8 pm. with free entry after 5 pm.
Museum Swedish of Natural History and Cosmonova.
The Museum has nine permanent exhibitions about the nature and development of humanity. You will also find different animals and plants in an interactive environment for all ages. It also has a Domo (IMAX) movie theater called COSMONOVA. A cupola of 760 square meters (8,000 square feet) where different documentaries are showed in Swedish. They usually have headphones that allow you to listen to the film in English, but if you prefer, you can take your own headset.
The entrance to the Museum is free, but not the tickets to COSMONOVA
Located on the island of Djurgården, Junibacken is a museum that promotes reading for children. The museum is set in the stories of Astrid Lindgren in general, and in particular in the wonderful world of Pippi Longstocking, where children can visit the house of Pippi and even ride her horse. During the train journey you can enter the wonderful world of Lindgren and its stories, and end this fun trip Villa Villekulla, home of Pippi Longstocking.
Skansen is also located on the island of Djurgården, and is the first open-air museum in the world. Founded in 1891, it exhibits more than 150 historic houses that have been dismantled and transported here and allow us to experience the way of life of the different regions of Sweden over time. You will also find a zoo with both wild animals, bears and lynx, as well as domestic animals such as goats and chickens.
Another fact to keep in mind is that all the celebrations and national holidays, usually also have their place in Skansen, therefore, if you plan to visit this museum I would recommend checking the website and see the schedule.
The Swedish History Museum
The Swedish History Museum exhibits millions of objects that, among other things, portray Viking life. During the summer, there is even a show dedicated especially to them. You can find pieces of medieval art, objects of gold and silver, and unique findings from the Battle of Gotland 1361. In addition, practical activities for children, such as crafts and Viking games are organized in the museum’s courtyard.
