I visited this attraction as part of the Stockholm Pass and I left very disappointed but quite relieved I hadn't had to pay the full adult price of 165kr as there is no way this place is worth that kind of money. The tropical house and butterfly house are so small and there is hardly anything to look at. A... More

I really enjoyed the butterfly forest where you can just walk around in a shirt while trying to catch a glimpse of the butterflies flying around. The aquarium was disappointing though. It was promoted as Scandinavia's largest aquarium so I had high expectations but it turns out to be quite ordinary (perhaps for international standard). There was also the Dangerous... More

Good place to spend an hour with a small kid, some turtles, big fishes, butterflies and sharks (small/medium size). Check in advance for the Sharks presentation, only at a specific time. There is also fake tiger/crocodile and hippopotamus. Good to have a coffee shop inside to get a snack ( you can also go at the one near the park... More

Quite far from the city center, so take under consideration it can take about half an hour to get there. The butterflies are pretty amazing and there is a hatching spot where you can see the cocoons. Not as many butterflies as you think-but overall pretty nice exhibition. Furthermore there is an aquarium exhibition with sharks which are nice. In... More

I went to this attraction as part of the Stockholm Pass and because I love all things animal. I wasn't expecting too much because of its size, but I have to say that it's quite decent. There's a koi pond, butterfly area, insect and frog exhibits, and a few tanks with one larger one containing sharks. I thought that the... More

I felt a bit disappointed with it. I was expecting that butterflies was the core of the house, but it was only a couple of sticks where you can see how the butterfly was born (if you are lucky). But, then you can not see them actually around. The rest of the attractions are thought for kids, and not really... More

The place itself is tiny, they put plastic tiger, crocodile and a cobra to give it a better look... The aquarium part barely has any fish or shark

The museum is nice. But I would advise all visitors to eat somewhere else before or after the visit. The restaurant in the museum is expensive and bad. Ich rate allen an vor oder nach dem Besuch zu essen. Das Restaurant ist teuer und und das Essen schlecht.
