If your child loves to go to museums, the Natural History Museum of Stockholm is a must for you. Your kid will surely love to see the stuffed animals. There is a human body exhibit in the museum where kids can experience climbing up into the brain of a large model of human head, not to mention the dinosaur bones exhibited in the museum.

Open from May to September, the Tom Tits Experiment is situated in a suburb of the city, but it is worth the visit. It is a great discovery centre for visitors of all ages.
