Enter a storyland of children's literature at Junibacken, a museum devoted to famous works for kids, especially those of Astrid Lindgren, who wrote "Pippi Longstocking." This children's museum was opened in 1996 and is one of the city's most-visited sites. In addition to its permanent exhibits dedicated to authors and illustrators, it houses a theater, restaurant, and temporary displays.

  • After years of chasing, we finally went to Junibacken, when the children still are roughly at the target age. The place is quite small, and the price quite pricey, but the kids (and the parents) enjoyed this perfect stay for a couple of hours. Especially the fairy-tale train was excellent, and it got to choose a tongue per trolley. There was quite a lot of people on the spot, and every place with children full. The inside was not right with the prams to fit in, but the yard had a roofed stroller parking. The fuss was quite, but fortunately, the adults reached a breather between them if necessary.

  • We LOVE this children's museum! The exhibits are well done, and the ride is lovely (although some parts can be a bit scary for little ones). The entry fee is a bit pricey so it's worth getting a year pass if you plan on going more than twice.
  • Lovely place to visit with pre-teen children. Some fun play rooms and areas. We specially liked the story train that is available in multiple languages. There are lockers where you can keep your stuff. Ticket allows you to reenter so you can go out to eat or have picnic if your stay longer. The plays are only in Swedish but if your kids know the story, then it is still interesting to watch.
