Stockholm for Kids

Junibacken is a popular choice for those visiting Stockholm with children, but there are plenty of other fun attractions in the city to entertain the younger members of the family. The Skansen Open-Air Museum lets children experience 19th-century life in Sweden; the National Museum of Science and Technology has a special interactive zone for kids; and the Vasa Museum has a Family Trail to follow. There’s also the Gröna Lund amusement park, Skansen's Aquarium, and the Museum of Video Games (Spelmuseum).
