Interesting visit where you can see lots of different buildings from all over Sweden. Glass works that sells what it makes - nice items. With the attraction of its own zoo

Not much going on here in late April. Seems better suited for those with children than a couple in their mid 30’s. It may be better in peak season, but when we were there it was not worth the entrance fee.

This is a place to spend a full-day with family, young as well as old generations. Many cultural historical things to see, apart from the animals, playgrounds and fun things to explore.

It’s must see in Stockholm. Beautiful old houses, streets, you have a feeling like you travelled back in past. You can enter into the city or village house and see how was it decorated and how did people live hundreds years ago.

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.
