Stockholm for kids - Skansen and more

There's a curious kid hidden in me. Every now and then she wants to go out and play and see the world. I think that's why traveling makes me so happy. And when there is fun for the kid in me it is as good as it gets.

Djurgarden island in Stockholm is the place to be if you want to entertain your kids or your inner kid. The open air museum Skansen should be top of the list. It's a park, a museum, a zoo, an aquarium, a playground, an open air concert hall. As if these weren't enough, Skansen offers a spectacular view of the city and it has the most beautiful souvenir shop I've ever seen. Design is at it's best in Sweden. Here are some photos we took early March this year. Out of 5 days, just one was sunny so we took the opportunity to spend it outside :

There were tunnels that ended with observation spots to get you closer to the rabbits.

Very close to Skansen there are other attractions :

Vasa Museum where you can see the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world that stayed under water for 333 years
Junibacken  the house of fantasy play
Aquaria Water Museum
Gröna Lund's Amusement Park
The National Museum of Science and Technology

Further away from city center are:
Sky View
Swedish Museum of Natural History and Cosmonova

And outside Stockholm:
Tom Tits Experiment 

Have a great time in Stockholm!
