During my trip to Stockholm in July 2005, me and my friend Anja visited the "Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet".
For me, it was the most interesting museum I have been to in this time beside the Vasamuseum.
Not just stuffed animals in this huge museum but loads of exhibitions on the human body, Swedish nature, space and other things...oh, and the impressing IMAX cinema, showing several nature films a day on topics such as corals, savannahs, space and dinosaurs.
This is the Swedish Museum of Natural History (Naturhistoriska riksmuseet) is located at the University complex of Stockholm in the northern part of the city. At the museum they have exhibitions about the natural history and the polar regions. You shouldn't go here if you don't like lots of stuffed animals in glass cabinets or detailed descriptions of intestines of fishes. I don't think it is worth the money, 75 SEK. Hahaha, I got in for free and I still didn't like it ;-)
Opening hours: All year Tue - Sun 10:00 -19:00
The entrance to the museum is for free with Stockholm Card
The museum of Natural History is in the north of the city. The museum is divided in three areas, life and water, polar region, and 1.45 billion years. The museum is on e of the biggest of its kind in the world. Besides the museum there is a planetarium and an IMAX theatre. An IMAX screen is 25 times bigger than the screen in a regular cinema!!
Cosmonova is Sweden's only IMAX theather & largest planetarium
Here you can study planets, stars and other heavenly bodies.
You can see how a trip through the universe would look, travelling among planets, stars and galaxies.
There a lot of great sets in this fantastic museum.
And the special place takes the Cosmonova, that is how they cal their IMAX cinema.
