The Junibacken is an interactive museum for kids, located on the Djurgården island in Stockholm. Junibacken is designed as a place where story-time characters come to life, and kids are invited to make noise, play, climb, discover and learn, go to the theatre and relax.
The first thing visitors see on entering Junibacken is the Storybook Square with cobblestones, old-fashioned street lamps, and houses of some famous characters from children’s books. Than, kids and parents are invited to take the Story Train ride through the fairy tale world of Astrid Lindgren. Narration through the ride is available in 16 languages (Swedish, Arabic, English, Finnish, French, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Estonian, German, Norwegian, Danish, and Polish). The train journey ends at Villa Villekulla, the home of Pippi Longstocking.
The museum is open all the year round, and daily performances for children are held at the theater. For the convenience of its guests Junibacken has a restaurant and a children's bookshop with souvenirs and toys. Strollers are not allowed into the museum, but baby carriers can be borrowed at the entrance at no additional fee.
