Aquaria Water Museum of Stockholm was founded in the early 1990-ies, when the reconstruction works of the building, where the world's only preserved sailing ship built in the XVII century – the flagship frigate Vasa- was exhibited, took place on the island Djurgården.
The main feature of the Museum lies in the fact that the atmosphere of different climatic zones - from the tropics to the cold North- is recreated in different halls. When you move from hall to hall, you find yourself in different conditions (by the temperature, humidity, vegetation). Thus, you get very bright feelings.
In the Water Museum, you will get acquainted with the inhabitants of seven seas, tropical rainforests and Scandinavian lakes. Here you can observe the life of sharks, see how a small fish Archer hunts, learn interesting facts about the "prototype" of the cartoon character Nemo — a clownfish, try to walk on the bridge over the water swarming with piranhas. After visiting the exhibition of the Northern seas, you will see how trout, sailing to the Museum to spawn, jumps straight from the sea into the aquarium, when the fish leaves these places, where it goes and the reason for returning. Here you can watch a fascinating film about the life of fishes, feed sharks and buy souvenirs.
This Museum can`t boast of its size and wealth of the collection, but it is very cute and very interesting, especially for children.
