One of the main attractions of Stockholm and, perhaps, the main entertainment center for children is the Junibacken Museum. It is located almost in the center of the city, on the island Djurgården. Here you can meet the most famous characters of Scandinavian fairy tales, attend exciting performances and buy many souvenirs and books.
Junibacken is often called the Astrid Lindgren Museum, but it's not quite right. In addition to Pippi Långstrump and Carlson, here you can find Winnie the Pooh (Alan Milne), Mumintroll (Tove Marika Jansson) and even the American Ghost hunters. The jungle, located on the ground floor, will transfer you into the world of Mowgli and Tarzan.
The Junibacken Museum was opened in 1996. It is annually visited by over 400 thousand of visitors. There is a statue of Astrid Lindgren at the museum.
The main attraction of Junibacken is a journey through the tales in a special train, during which you will hear a fascinating story (there are available tours in different languages). Moreover, at the Villa of Pippi Långstrump, children will be able to fool around and make some noise. The only drawback of this fantastic world is a big queue.
There is a souvenir shop with books at the museum. It is the largest book store with books by Astrid Lindgren.
