  • If you want to cover all of the permanent and temporary exhibitions, you will have to set aside the best part of a day... The museum is impressive. When we visited, the photos of the latest (2018) contest of Wildlife Photographer of the Year were on show with winners and runners-up in the various categories. An amazing array of shots. The exhibition on Swedish fauna, however, is really the main attraction, with some taxidermy masterpieces on show. The life-like impression is breathtaking.
  • Great place to visit. The building itself from the outside is already nice and you can go in for free! They have a impressive collection and there is also a movie theatre. For that part you have to pay, but it was worth it. We had lunch here and that was good too.
