Torekällbergets friluftsmuseum [openair museum] is perched on a hill top above Södertälje and entry is free. It consists of various old style Swedish buildings housing a variety of eclectic exhibitions, together with enclosures containing different types of goats and cows. You can also find some gift shops up here and a restaurant/bar, though over the winter 2007 they were closed.
This is the kind of place you can bring young children for a few hours, they help the keepers feed ducks, make noises at the pigs and goats and stroke the ponies. Adults can wile away a few hours too, taking a walk in the parkland and popping in and out of the different houses.
Among the exhibit houses is a school house in the style of the 1800s, complete with old style school desks. Another house, transported whole from another location a number of years ago shows how nicely a middle class summer home could be in the last century.
Among the mini-museums on site are a Signwriters exhibition, not quite the most facinating thing I've ever seen. As a lover of curious, slightly off the wall museums, I was disappointed that the Elmuseet was closed - looking through the window it seems to be a collection of, er... light switches. Mad.
The Scania vehicle museum displays passengers cars, trucks and buses dating back to the very fist models produced by the company. The Marcus Wallenberg Hall may be closed to the general public from time to time. To avoid disappointment, pleas telephone in advance
Come to the pool that has everything – offering four hours of adventure in the waves, diving boards, waterfalls, jacuzzis, waterslides, large pools and shallow lagoons. The diving boards (at 1 m, 3 m and 5 m high) are out in the fitness pool, where we also have a large jacuzzi.

Welcome to Sweden´s largest Science centre. Even at the entrance to the Tom *** Experiment, somethings happens to the visitors. The body tingles with anticipation, your eyes become expectant and activated with energy. There is so much to do. And to poke, squeeze, and lift. Children and adults have fun regardless of the wéather. With a total of 600 experiments it is now larger than before
Sodertalje has a nice waterfront. There is a boardwalk that follows the shore and passes by several parks and a few restaurants. It's a nice spot for an evening stroll and is recommended if you're in town. It is less than a five minute walk from the tram station.
There are many small parks around town. One of the bigger ones, located just a few minutes walking distance from the central train station is Badparken. I grew up right next to this park, and it will always be my favorite!!!
