Enter a storyland of children's literature at Junibacken, a museum devoted to famous works for kids, especially those of Astrid Lindgren, who wrote "Pippi Longstocking." This children's museum was opened in 1996 and is one of the city's most-visited sites. In addition to its permanent exhibits dedicated to authors and illustrators, it houses a theater, restaurant, and temporary displays. Seek out the interactive exhibits, like the storybook square, where each house represents a different Swedish children's writer, or the train ride ending at the home of Lindgren's most famous character--Pippi Longstocking.

it's an unrealistically cool place. I recommend everyone with small children to visit it. You will definitely not regret it! It's like immersing yourself in a fairy tale and feeling like a child. Cool emotions are waiting for you! My child said that this is the best amusement park for children
The best attraction for kids of different ages including infants I have experienced. Various playground areas, theatre performances throughout the day, decent lunch option and the unforgettable fairytale “train” (kids will definitely ask you for at least one more ride). I stayed there with my family a whole day and we all loved it!
