The surroundings are gorgeos but the ticket prices were insane! Definitely not worth it, would have preferred a free walk around Djurgården instead. It was very sad to see some of the animals in their tiny enclosures. There were some interesting reptiles though - spent...More

This place is what I remember best from my own childhood, when visiting Stockholm and Sweden. Now my own children, 14 & 12, always want to experience this place whenever in town.

Skansen is the type of place where you could spend a whole day plus. It has a zoo and the rest of it is an historic site. Like Sturbridge it has homes of different vintages including a number of farms with all their out-buildings. Inside...More

Excellent fun for families. Lots of strange animals and you walk with quite a few monkeys. Try petting the snake and spider in the end.

Spent a full day here and it was the best day we had whilst in Sweden. If you've been to Beamish then it's similar to that where you can visit old houses and schools etc. Lots going on for everyone.

Wonderful place for family. This place combines the ancient life in Sweden and zoo. There is also traditional Swedish food like coffee with buns (Fika) and potatoes with fish.
