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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 2 Days.

Great place if you grew up reading the stories. The sets in all the rooms are made well. Thw train ride is awesome. The area is great too if you can squeeze in the museums during this visit. Overall a great experience
Well, it's a good place for children under say 10 years. Specially the train ride, it was absolutely the best. It gives a insight in Astrid Lindgrens story telling and fantasy worlds. A good place for kids to play around at, if it's not too crowded as during holidays.
Being a huge Astrid Lindgren fan, I had to stop at Junibacken when my daughter and I visited Sweden. We enjoyed both the bookstore and the restaurant. It is really geared toward younger children and I am sure I would have stayed longer if I had them with me. As it was, I still found the visit entertaining and well worth our time.
Beautiful experience for kids. Full of lots of great activities. Especially good if your child is familiar with the stories featured. We were lucky to catch the summer play and the child actors were absolutely wonderful. One star docked for how busy it felt. The entire "storybook land" was too crowded for kids to play freely and the line for the story train was quite long. We visited midday on a Wednesday in July.
The place itself is fun but not so big. The restaurant is good. If you are traveling as a group, you should be aware that the Astrid Lindgren train attraction can unfortunately only be boarded by the whole group at the same time, or the ticket will be lost.
