Djurgårdsbrunn Things to Do

  • The Vasa Museum

    I think I have to start this page with the most famous of the museums in Stockholm: The Vasa Museum. It is a real must see! And it is no wonder that it is Scandinavia's most visited museum.In the museum you can see the large warship Vasa. It is the only remaining and intact 17th century ship in the world. The wreck was salvaged in 1961 and now on...

You can find here all traditional rides, where you'll be shaken around in all ways imaginable, from up side down, left to right and of course flying high up into the air and fall even quicker down again. With two rollercoaster and a staggering high free-fall...

  • Nordiska Museet

    In the Nordiska Museet, which is located opposite the Vasa Museum) you can discover the history of the Swedish people. I haven't come any further yet then the outside of the museum, but the building itself is already quite impressive. Inside you can see traditions, fashions, table settings, furnished interiors, paintings by Strindbert and much...

  • Kaknästurnet

    The last tip is certainly not the most beautiful one to look at: the Kaknästurnet (Kaknäs tower). The Kaknäs Tower is the hub of all TV and radio transmission in Sweden. And although ugly to look at it is said that you have some wonderful views from this 155-metre high tower over the whole of Stockholm. The tower doesn't only have a viewing...

  • Totem pole of the Haisla Indians, Canada

    The last thing about the Etnografiska Museet I would like to show you is this totem pole of the Haisla Indians in Canada. But if you want to see this totem pole in the museum you do have to hurry! After long talks and renewed interests in the totem pole by the Haisla Indians, the totem pole will now return to where it belongs, in British Columbia,...

  • Etnografiska museet

    Another part of the Etnografiska museet that cought my interest was the exhibition about Benin. The museum has a large collection about Benin and the major part of this collection has been donated by professor Hans Meyer (1858-1929) from Germany. The Republic of Benin is a country in West Africa, formerly known as Dahomey or Dahomania. By the 17th...

  • Etnografiska museet

    The Etnografiska museet has an extensive collection av the native population of North-, Middle and Southern America and even of Greenland. And part of this collection is about the Teotihuacán and I really enjoyed this part of the museum. So that's why I posted a few of the photos I took there."Teotihuacán" (teh-oh-tee-wah-kahn) is a Nahuatl name,...

  • Etnografiska museet

    The Etnografiska museet (Museum of Ethnography) is located next to the Tekniska Museet (Museum of Science and Technology) and the Sjöhistoriska museet (National Maritime Museum). This museum seems to be the smallest of the three, but there is enough to see here to keep you busy for at least an hour or probably much more. The museum has collections...

    This tip is under construction. This tip is going to be about the Sjöhistoriska Museet & Tekniska Museet. I'll try to add more info to this tip as soon as I can.

  • The slithering one.....

    The slithering one.....Okay, let me introduce you to some of the 'cute' animals of the Skansen Aquarium. Some are a bit creepy though, hahaha, as this one from the snake collection. They are behind glass though, so not really something to worry about. Although.... I was here in the morning hours during a weekday in the winter, no one else to see...

  • Skansen

    I've only been to Skansen in the wintertime and this isn't the best time to be here. During summer the place comes alive, all kinds of events are going on, and it must be fun to walk around here in the summertime. In the winter it is very quiet and not much to do, so I can't really recommend in going here during that time of year, with the...

  • Why did the Vasa sink?

    When the Vasa set sail in 1628 she was one of the mightiest warship in the world. With 64 guns and 300 soldiers she was to put fear in the hearts of the enemy. But it never got that far, the ship sank after just a few minutes of sailing. So why did a brand-new and mighty ship like this sink so quickly? Nowadays it might sound such an illogical to...

  • The woodcarvings of the Vasa

    The part of the ship that I really enjoyed was watching the woodcarvings. There are around 700 sculptures and ornaments that decorate the warship. This is a huge woodcarving on the back of the ship. But you can find woodcarvings on all parts of the ship, like in the previous picture, where you can see a lions head on the gun port.The woodcarvers...

  • Skansen akvariet (Skansen Aquarium)

    When you are at Skansen, you must consider visiting the Skansen Akvariet (Skansen Aquarium) as well. You have to pay an extra entrance fee in addition to the entrance to Skansen, but I think it is worth it, as it is a little but very nice aquarium. You can see all kinds of exotic animals here, like flesh-eating piranha, crocodiles, spiders, snakes,...
