Lovely location and fascinating living history site conveniently located near other great sites (especially the Vasa Museum). We made a day of the Nordic Museum, Vasa and Skansen and it was great! Many locals are out and about at Skansen, but it is clearly also...More

Really enjoyed seeing traditional Swedish culture and learning about the differences in rural and urban communities. Part of the museum is a zoo, but I don't feel this added much to the experience (as personally I'm not a fan of zoos). But really enjoyed the...More

Great place to spend the day. See craftsmen at work, wander in and out of historic homes and I enjoyed a great concert

We were really intrigued with the concept of this space but we found the maps to be difficult to read and we overwhelmed with the size of it. (Jet lag was likely a factor) The food in the restaurant was excellent.

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

Jack, I have never seen any unfortunately. This doesn't mean that they don't have them now. The museum is partly situated on a hill, but since the walkways are wide and flat (good for wheel chairs and strollers I believe) it... More

Hi! How much of the site would be open in late April this year? I'd love to visit but the recent reviewers claim that most of it closed due to the weather :/
