    Gabriel at Junibacken

    Junibacken is a kid's paradise! There are lots of different exhibits that are totally child friendly; you don't have to worry about them getting hurt or breaking something. There is a "train" ride through Swedish stories, available in English, and Pippi's house at the end of the ride that your kids can go through and maybe even meet Pippi. It is easy to spend several hours here. The price is a steep 95SEK for adults, 75SEK for children over 3; the Stockholm a la carte card does get you in for free though.

    In the museum Junibacken you can find the characters of the Astrid Lindgrens books. She is a writer of childrens books, but I think that most of the europeans must have watched her TV-series. for me, Pippi Langkous (Longstockings), is well known, and brings back memories.

    It's a real childrens museum with a few playgrounds and an adventure ride through some of the stories of Astrid Lindgren.

    On the ride you can choose from many languages. So the children can also enjoy the stories in their own language.

    I will also upload a video about Junibacken; so have a look at my video section too for an impression of the ride.

    Prices on august 1, 2009:
    Adults: 125 kronen (12 euro)
    Children: 110 kronen (10 euro)

    Just been to Junibacken with my 3 children and my sister and her 2 year old child. It is a great place to visit, especially if you have read any of Astrid Lindgrens books - but be warned the storytrain ride is quite scary. It is dark in many areas and some of Lindgrens themes are rather dark too - its definitely not all Pippi Longstocking. For the young children especially it is rather frightening. My 7 year olds had no problem, but my 4 year old did, and my sisters 2 year old thought it was best to cuddle up to mummy as hard as she could. When my twins were 3 they were screaming on this ride with fear - although happily Junibacken have changed the dragon now - it is smaller and static and no longer lurches towards the ride.
    There is a whole array of languages to choose from so most people can understand what is happening.
    Pippi's house at the end of the ride is fun to play in, and the exhibition after the restaurant, currently Karlsson på Taket, the fat chap with the propella on his back, is of great quality, and despite the fact that it is over a year old it has withstood the test of time and the sheer numbers of children.
    Queues are LOOOONG to get in so either come early (opens at 10) or come prepared to wait.
    The bookshop is great and there is plenty to choose from and a few different languages although 95% is in swedish. The restaurant is OK, but lunch is just alright but the cakes etc are better so opt for coffe and a cake rather than lunch if you can.
