Sensational. I knew it would be a cool ride, but it exceeded my expectations. The place is beautiful, the signs are well positioned and appropriate, the conservation of the space is great, the structure of the place itself is also great. I had a lot of amazing photos at this place. Without a doubt, it was one of the best things I did when visiting Stockholm.

Incredibly fantastic. There is a lot to see. A whole day full of interesting exciting things. Very worthwhile for adults and children alike. We would visit Skansen a second time soon. Absolute favorite for Stockholm.
