Also at the time we went there (May 19), a superb free photo Expo also, and a film projection in a dome (€15/adult). The whole thing is clearly well thought out for the children: we find in all the rooms their dedicated workshops. Many games, quiz, sound effects making the Museum very playful, even for adults! But also a scientific aspect that we were very interested, being engineers big blow of heart for the part about the climate with notably a reconstruction of tornado with smoke, very Visual! Never seen for us only downside: not everything is translated into English. You can also enjoy the visit to stroll right in front in the large botanical garden.

It's not a large museum, but everything is well organized and super explained. For children, a pretty nice destination since there is all sort of species and special areas for learn while having fun. For adults, it's nice for the whales and dinosaurs fossils and for the great collection of precious stones. Moreover, it's a short walk distance from the Stockholm University and botanical garden, so you can join all three in the same ride.
If you are into bones, you'll get to see lots of them and try to guess who they belong to before reading the caption. Entertaining and interactive for the whole family, kids will love it and learn a lot. Definitely worth a visit, can skim through all exhibitions or choose one and explore in detail
