    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 the buildings are re-enacters dressed in appropriate clothes for the era. We happened to be there during the Autumn Harvest Fair. There were food and stalls with old time accents. There also was an accordian band with about 6 accordians and guitars and an harmonica playing old tunes. There were many spots to just sit and enjoy your surroundings. The Terrace Cafe had outdoor seating over-looking downtown Stockholm. All in all it is a must see place.

    Visited on a Tuesday at the beginning of August . Arrived around 11am and only had to queue for a short while. We didn't really know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. There was plenty to see and do for couples and families alike including typical historical Swedish buildings, (many with friendly, informative guides in period dress.) Nordic animal zoo and plenty of cafes. Would recommend spending at least 3/4 hours exploring the site.

    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.

    We were on the site for a few hours, you could be there for a whole day. The site includes real buildings from all over Sweden with activities for adults and children. Includes a zoo, highly recommended

    This is a wonderfully magical place. It's a brilliant idea to have all this different structure place together in a park. And to include zoo as well. The ticket price isn't expensive. Only think you need is enough time and strength to walk around. It's a really nice place for families and kids to visit. For adults like myself, it's throughly enjoyable too . Explanation in English, that helps a lot too .

    Very recommended place. It's a place full of nature and very kids friendly, perfect to spend the day, see the animals and learn the history of the place.

    I loved watching the seals for the first time but beyond that the aquarium collection wasn't that large. The zoo close by (within Skansen) has a great collection of some interesting animals including the European bison, wolverine, wolf etc.

    There is only one Skansen with all of the old houses collected from all parts of Sweden and within them a great variety of activities from the glass blower, ceramic studio, the bakery, bank and lill skansen with the small animals that today only the goats can be patted, if they choose to come near. There are also a few rides with the classical Skansen train making a tour all around and gives a good view of the quite large park. It is a pity that to see many of the animals (monkeys and the aquarium) there is an extra fee. Our grandkids were able to go horseback riding for the first time in their life on ponies and they were thrilled. One of the musts in Stockholm, even without kids, and it is better when it is not raining.

    In the skansen village you find this Aquarium. It hosts a vsriety tropical animals. Crocodiles, lizards, etc. It was a lovely zoo tour that took us about 30 minutes to cover.

    The ringtailed lemurs are so friendly. One of them decided to walk right over our feet - so funny. Another one decided my handbag looked tasty (no food in it!) and took the handle with it's cute little hands and attempted a gentle bite. When I said no, it left the bag and continued to another place in their home :-) They are great hosts. :-)

    This is a wonderful and historical collection of homes,churches and buildings from all over Sweden dating back to the 13th century. We spent a full day there. Better than any history class. We would highly recommend it.

    We nearly spent the whole day in skansen. It's below 200SEK per person and totally worth it. It's a animal park mixed with a historical museum. You feel like walking through an old Swedish village and make sure you don't miss the "bakeri", cheap,fresh and awesome kanelbullar are waiting there
