  1. Visit to experience unparalleled fun for kids
    Vasa Museum

    Family and Kids

    Unusual to look at, yet utterly enchanting on the inside, this museum is one of Stockholm’s unmissable gems. Opened recently in 1990, the prime exhibit here is the Vasa, a ship doomed by it’s own weight and height during it’s maiden voyage, that sank less than 1300 metre out into the water. Salvaged in 1961 and put through intensive reconstruction, the Vasa looks as good as n...Read more

    Rosendals Tradgard

    Garden

    Not many public gardens are famous for biodynamic agriculture, a form of organic farming popularised by Rudolf Steiner in the early 20th century. Find out what it is about over here where fruits, vegetables and flowers are cultivated. It’s a charming collection of greenhouses, rose beds, a vineyard, an orchard and vegetable fields. That’s not all. Remember to check out the terrific...Read more
  4. Amazing Stockholm attraction for kids
    Fjarilshuset

    Aquarium

    There are three attractions here - the aquarium, the Butterfly house and the cafe. The stars of the aquarium are the Blacktip Reef Shark and the Sandbar Shark that live in a limestone based coral reef environment. Fascinating though this might be the lush and humid tropical butterfly house complete with waterfalls is the delight of this attraction, with several thousand specimens representing o...Read more
  5. Can keep your kids busy for days
    Hagaparken

    Park, Picnic Spot

    The locals just call it the Haga. Located about to the north of the main city, developed by King Gustav III, and made famous by troubadour Carl Michael Bellman, this massive park has a LOT to offer. The first thing you should know is that it’s a lakeside picnic and sunbathing area with wide fields and clumpy little woods. But the main points of interest are the curious collection of struc...Read more
  6. Perfect for kids day out in Stockholm
    Thielska Galleriet

    Family and Kids

    This intimate house was built for banker and collector Ernest Thiel, who, after losing his fortune, donated his collection to the state in 1924. In doing so, he gifted the state one of the world’s finest collection of Nordic art dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Some of the prominent artists who find a space here are E Jansson, Carl Larsson, Bruno Liljefors and Anders Zo...Read more

  8. A cool place to see with kids
    Maritime Museum

    Family and Kids

    Sweden’s naval history is so huge that they need at least three museums just to cover it all properly. This museum, housed in a 18th century neoclassical building, focuses on merchant shipping and shipbuilding. And that’s still not enough - this complex only has a plethora of objects, drawings and photos. The boats themselves are outside of Vasa Museum. The collection includes histo...Read more
  9. A fantastic place for refreshing break for children
    Gamla Stans Polkagriskokeri

    Family and Kids

    Every major town or city worth its salt has one or a handful or stores that literally everyone should know about and this candy shop in Old Town is one of them. Handmade Swedish confections - canes, hards, toffee, liquorice, dogs - in every imaginable flavor (strawberry, mint, tutti-frutti, lemon, pear, blueberry, cola). You’re guaranteed to want one of everything.
  10. One of the awesome things children enjoy the most
    Medelhavsmuseet

    Family and Kids

    The museum’s premise is simple - focus on ancient artifacts from the ancient civilizations around the Mediterranean. Formed in 1954, the collection includes a treasure trove of historical objects from Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ancient Cyprus (one of the best in the world), and Ancient Rome. The museum elaborates and delineates history with the help of stories, objects, films and digi...Read more
  11. The best option for younger visitors
    Biologiska Museet

    Family and Kids

    Biological museums don’t usually look like this. Architect Agi Lindegren took the inspiration of the look from Norwegian stave churches. Bruno Liljefors, known for his dramatic wildlife paintings, made the dioramas. The museum itself was started by taxidermist Gustaf Kolthoff. It explores the natural habitats and wildlifes of Scandinavia. In other words, mostly a lot of stuffed animals. S...Read more
  12. A place where kids enjoy and have fun
    King's Garden

    Garden

    Stockholm’s most popular hangout was once a vegetable garden patronized by the royals. A much vaunted sight here is Molin’s Fountain, decorated with figures and scenes from Nordic mythology. The park really comes alive in winter, when it’s a favorite spot for ice skating. The lights and the snow and the crowd in the evenings almost makes the place seem festive. The lazy ones i...Read more
  13. A place perfect for families with kids
    Hellasgarden

    Games

    This natural preserve southeast of Stockholm borders the Källtorpssjön Lake. It is a lot more than a mere park though. There are tonnes of activities. Sauna, minigolf, beach volleyball, gym, canoeing, spa cycling, hiking and yoga are only some of the ways to spend time here. The sauna is actually located on the lake shore. This place is also technically a hotel, so you can stay overni...Read more
