About Junibacken, Stockholm

The statue of Astrid Lindgren welcomes you into what is one of Stockholm’s most visited attractions. It is a museum and cultural center dedicated to children, children’s literature, and the Swedish authors who contributed to this rich heritage. And is is incredible. Colorfully decorated, magically illuminated, lovingly detailed, and entirely interactive, the museum brings to life scenes and characters and places from some of Sweden’s favorite children’s stories. As most adults grow up reading these, they enjoy the nostalgia just as much as children enjoy the novelty.

There are three major highlights. The first is the Storybook Square, which is a Disney-esque neighborhood housing most of the Sweden’s favourite children’s authors. The second is the Story Train, a thrilling 15 minute ride in which Astrid Lindgren’s world of Pippi Longstocking is brought to life. And the last is the bookstore, which is the largest children’s bookstore in the country.

They’ve also added a charming outdoor garden to play in.

Junibacken, Stockholm Reviews - Write a Review

  • Beautiful place for kids to play and experience the world of Astrid Lindgren. Also features a ride for the whole family. Spend a couple of hours here and end with a coffee and a visit in the toy/souvenir shop!

  • My daughter favourite museum. Fantastic place for kids up to around 6 years old. Good restaurant and temporary events

  • A must see place for children of all ages. Especially the fairytale train was awesome experience, and there are several languages in which the story is told during the train ride. I spent with my six-year-old more time there than we both expected before hand.

  • This is a playful and imaginative museum for younger kids - my toddler played all day! Staff are wonderful and get right on the same level as the children. The story time train could be a little scary for some kids (they warn you about this), but a really fun treat for most kids (and their grown-ups!)!

  • Nice place for kids but be careful with the non-guarded cloakroom, my winter coat was stolen there. They don't have video surveillance so there is no chance to recover a stolen item.
