Nordic Museum (Nordiska Museet)

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Amazing building, shame about the exhibits "

Quote:
The Nordic museum is located on the island of Djurgarden in Stockholm and specilises in showing different parts of Scandanavian life throughout the ages. To be honest the only reason that we visited this museum was because it was included in the list of museums that were free to enter with the Stockholm card and we were on Djurgarden anyway visiting the Vasa museum. First impressions of the outside were good as the museum is housed in an amazing castle like building and looked really impressive. When we entered we just had to flash our cards and were given tickets and asked if we wanted a free ausio guide which we said yes to. The audio guide is one of those high tech one...Read More

Djurgarden

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Beautiful island with some of the best museums"

Quote:
Djurgarden is an island in Stockholm that you will probably end up on at some point during your visit to the city as this is where some of the cities most popular attractions are located. If you are coming by boat you will dock at Grona Lunds amusement park. The amusement park is very old fashioned in a nostalgic way and you can spend either an afternoon here going on the rides ojust soaking up the atmosphere with a drink at one of the many bars and restaurants. When you exit the park the next attraction is the Aquarium in which we spent a fun hour or so, it isn't large so you won't need all that much time to visit it so you should definately try and go whilst on your way to other at...Read More

Skansen Museum

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "History come alive "

Quote:
Skansen is a huge open air museum and zoo on the island of Djurgarden and an absolute must see for children and adults alike. Covering an area of over 75 acres you will need to leave a least a few hours to be able to fully appreciate this wonderful place. You are given a map when you enter which believe me you will need as the place is massive and it is easy to wander about trying to find a particular part of it. Skansen houses a recreation of a traditional Swedish village from the 1800's and this is a real highlight. The detail is absolutely incredible and the houses are absolutely fascinating to look around and it really does give you a good idea of what life would have been ...Read More

Attraction | "Fabulous museum "

Being interested in modern art I wanted to visit the Moderna Museet on my visit to Stockholm especially when I found out that the permanent collection housed such artists as Warhol, Picasso, Dali and Matisse. The museum is located on the island of Skeppsholmen across the water from Djurgarden which we found easy to get to by using the hop on hop off boats but there is also a bridge linking it to the city which you can either walk (which we did on the way back when we missed the last boat) or bike along. The museum is housed in a large industrial looking building which looks like a factory from the outside with large glass windows which really help to stream light into the different f...Read More

Aquaria vattenmuseum

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Small but fun and interesting "

Quote:
The Aquaria in Stockholm was another attraction we visited becuse we were in the area and it was included free with our Stockholm card. It was also the first thing we passed after getting off the boat at Djurgarden island where it is located. The building looks quite small from the outside so we weren't really expecting to see a great deal and to be honest the Aquaria museum doesn't really contain a huge amount of sea life but it is still worth a visit. As it is on Djurgarden it is easy to get to and will be on your way to the Vasa museum or Skansen. When you go in you can go up some stairs and enter a small tropical rain forest room which is heated to the temperature it would ...Read More
