The building's is large and impressive from the outside, but the collection seems to only be stages in a small section. Very few animals, compared to other collections in other towns. Many of the animals have seen better days, and look fake or discoloured.

Happy to have found this open on a Monday, as many attractions are closed after the weekend. Incredible timber building housing a fascinating collection of Scandinavian fauna from 1891, displayed in a full 360 degree diorama. An interesting and informative introduction from staff. Go see this while you can, it's already 125years old and won't be around forever.

The building is certainly interesting, and the exhibits are ok, maybe just a little out dated, but certainly there are some that can have some value. The entrance fee is on the cheaper side, so not a bad value.

We were drawn to the building because it was so interesting from the outside. The exhibits were old and a bit dusty but it was still interesting to see all the different types of animals in the area. There were handouts in English and the staff was very nice. Funny little discovery if you are in the neighborhood. We probably... More

The museum building is one of the most impressive ones I have seen, really worth getting there. Then the entrance fee is cheaper than other museums. The visit will only take 30 minutes as it's main exhibition is a two-floor diorama with a double helix stair. They will give you a paper with the names of the animals (avaible in... More

We weren't sure what sort of exhibits this museum would have, but my husband wanted to go and the entrance fee is on the low end for Stockholm. During the winter, the opening hours are limited, so make sure to check before visiting. The museum itself is basically a giant taxidermy display. It's pretty neat in that I haven't seen... More

I took a trip to the biological musem as i'm quite interested in biology, as well as the fact that it's really centrally located and easy to combine with other attracions or museums. I was however pretty dissapointed. The museum itself is very old, and looks like it has not been changed at all during the last 70 years or... More

The building: Impressive - There is an amazing double-helix style staircase leading to the main exhibit. The main display was in an glass-enclosed panorama around a viewing deck. The displays were interesting and were displayed in a kind of apocalyptic landscape. I am guessing that "apocalyptic" is not the look that the museum was going for, so they may want... More

If you want to see a truly astonishing natural history museum you must visit this. Slightly more than 100 years old it features, as its main attraction, an 180o diorama that takes you imperceptibly though the Swedish landscapes from the very north to the southern tip, with the landscapes varied animals and plants. As an extra the museum is located... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
