    One of the the best places I’ve been too. You get so close. Very interactive. Got to feed monkeys

  • 5Ivo C. 2 weeks ago
    Beautiful, well kept aquarium with many interesting animals. Plenty of information there too! You could even pet the snake, and the babboons have babies right now.

  • 2Dean F. 4 weeks ago
    Aquarium is not worth the money. It is cool but the Baltic Sea Science center is free, right next to it and 1000x better.

    Skansen by itself is SO worth it. I don't understand why the aquarium is a separate fee. They can charge 5 to 10 kr more to enter Skansen and make the aquarium part of it. Instead of charging 160 kr extra. For one thing, it's not that big. It's also a very small part of the park.

    Very good, bear almost ate my friends so it was really fun

  • 3Nader H. 1 month ago
    Regular aquarium with small fish. This place is inside the Skansen and you will need to pay for it on top of the Skansen entry fee.

  • 5Ajay K. 1 month ago
    The diversity of marine species housed in the aquarium is truly impressive. From colorful tropical fish 🐠 to majestic sea turtles 🐢, from graceful rays 🐬 to mysterious jellyfish 🦑, there was something to captivate every visitor. The well-designed exhibits provided a glimpse into the mesmerizing underwater world, allowing me to get up close and personal with these beautiful creatures.

    Great place. Poor customer service skills. Girl feeding large fish unable to advise/explain where to stand to best watch feeding. As a newcomer to aquarium I was left lost and missed the feeding. The girl's English was perfect so this was not the issue. Explanations as to where to stand should have been clearer. Fortunately another girl able to show me smaller fish feeding. However I missed the feeding of the large fish which I still consider a real shame 2 weeks later. Left feeling disappointed.

    A lot of great animals, and something fun for all ages to enjoy, in a great atmosphere. The areas are themed so you feel like you're in with the animals.

  • 4Patrick O. 3 months ago
    A nice little aquarium with some interesting fish and reptiles in the heart of Skansen. Quite relaxing and informative

  • 4Maliha K. 4 months ago
    A must visit particularly for children as they can get a chance to explore various living creatures and understand environment in broader world. Like a little adventurer in real forest 🙂

  • 5D. 4 months ago
    It costs an additional fee, but that's well worth it! You can get very close to several animals (no touching, though, except for organized events) and learn a great deal about them as well. Check out the hilarious info on the Cuban Crocodiles!

  • 4Desislava D. 5 months ago
    It is very clean and the animals looks healthy and happy. I was expecting more sea creatures. There was monkeys, frogs, crocodiles, snakes, lizards and more,but not so much fish. Otherwise was nice experience and the animals looks in good condition.

  • 5Vinay K. 6 months ago
    Interesting setup.. Lots of acquatic animals on display and an overhead Glass panel which is the main attraction too..

  • 5Magnus K. 6 months ago
    Skansen have tons of things to see, the aquarium is one of few paid attractions one can do here. My son was super i pressen by the crocodile and petted a large snake and a cockroach at the end of the aquarium. Children below 4 are free.

  • 5Lin Z. 8 months ago
    The most odd interesting aquarium in Stockholm! Since you will see all food fish alive and swimming in the water instead, for example herring, salmon, cold fish and so on, will stay there for quite sometime when visiting Skansen, favorite spot!

  • 4J. 10 months ago
    Very nice place with lots of “unusual” animals. Kids enjoyed it very much! Just a bit too crowded during the weekend.

  • 5m. 10 months ago
    Very nice park and zoo! Good explanation about animal life & health in northern regions. Could also feed some friendly squirrels!

  • 4Alessandro T. 1 year ago
    Very nice park for families and children; animals look well kept with lots of space. The aquarium is beautiful with many terrariums for insects, reptiles and other species. It's a pity you cannot buy tickets for the aquarium without buying the one for the park. Villages and scenes of daily life of past centuries reconstructed in detail. Many small restaurants inside and shops selling street food. Services available.

  • 5Andreas T. 1 year ago
    First time visit. Super exciting having all the animals so close.

  • 5kk102g .. 1 year ago
    Great place to see animals from Baltic sea and to realize how important it is to limit consumption and pollution. Very friendly and competent staff is always ready to answer questions from kids and adults.

  • 4Dejan I. 1 year ago
    Skansen akvarium was good. I would like it to be bigger and to have more space for animals. But I do understand that space is not something that you can find that easy.

  • 5Mk B. 1 year ago
    The aquarium is a nice size with a wide variety of animals, insects, and fish. I booked a private experience with a zookeeper to feed and interact with monkeys and sloths, and not only was it absolutely AMAZING, it was incredibly interesting and informative. Will definitely be returning and would 1000000% recommend!

  • 5Елена �. 1 year ago
    We liked it very much. It us a big territory where you can walk. Also buy tickets to a close zoo in Skansen. It is very impressed.

  • 4José Luis E. 1 year ago
    It was a great experience. The place is well maintained and most of the animals seems well kept. There were some snakes that had a bit small area for them but I don't have knowledge on how they need to be kept. In general things looks great! My family loved it.

  • 3Anastasia B. 1 year ago
    The aquarium is quite small. The park around it is however really beautiful.

  • 5Julia K. 1 year ago
    Great akvarium with Baltic sea species. A lot of interesting exhibitions for all ages.

  • 5Lars S. 1 year ago
    Lots of different things to see. Beautiful displays. A bit expensive but worth the cost. The children really loved all the animals.

  • 5Robban J. 1 year ago
    Wonderful place for both grownups and kids. Educational, great experience. Recommended

  • 5Mats W. 2 years ago
    A very nice add on to Skansen. Separate fee to get in, mind.

  • 4Daniel B. 2 years ago
    Skansen Aquarium is a nice experience. I recommend a visit

  • 4Cristiana U. 2 years ago
    Skansen is the first open-air museum and zoo in Sweden and is located on the island Djurgården in Stockholm. It was opened on 1891 to show the way of life in the different parts of Sweden before the industrial era. The Skansen Aquarium is one of the most beautiful displays in the park, in my opinion. If you have time, use some comfy shoes and choose a good weather day, and go for it...

  • 4Kumar S. 2 years ago
    Skansen is nice place to enjoy with Kids. I didnt like that they charge for rides inside it along with charging a 240 approx ticket beforehand. Rest all good and some where descriptions are missing inside the museum

  • 5Pooja S. 2 years ago
    Skansen aquarium is amazing it took me 4 hours to visit whole place it’s quite big place always take full day to visit this place perfect for family’s also also inside cafes are amazing must try also best to visit in summer

  • 4resthie r. 2 years ago

    (Translated by Google) Best on the fort, should be bigger (Original) Bästa på skansen, borde vara större

    (Translated by Google) Thank you Ana for a nice trip to the lemurs and that we got to go for a walk in the aquarium. (Original) Tack Ana för en fin tur till lemurerna och att vi fick gå en runda i akvariet.

  • 5Karolina M. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Both the children and we adults thought that the aquarium was an exciting and fun extra attraction at Skansen. Nice terrariums and aquariums and with season tickets we went in for half the price. (Original) Både barnen och vi vuxna tyckte att akvariet var en spännande och kul extraattraktion på Skansen. Fina terrarier och akvarier och med säsongskort gick vi in till halva priset.

  • 5Yosef C. 2 years ago
    Nice little aquarium in Skansen. A bit expensive, but when I went all the animals were out and about so it made it worth the money. The highlight has to be the baboon exhibit where their were upwards of 50 baboons of all ages

  • 5Sussie C. 2 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Corresponded to expectations. It was clean and tidy for the animals. Few visitors on site, even if a school class was there at the same time, it was big enough that we did not have to be in the same place at the same time, so it felt safe and nice. (Original) Motsvarade förväntningarna. Det var rent och snyggt för djuren. Få besökare på plats, även om en skolklass var där samtidigt, så var det stort nog att vi inte behövde vara på samma ställe samtidigt, så det kändes tryggt och trevligt.

    (Translated by Google) Pretty ok! Not like many attractions like at the former Aquarium ... in addition, you also pay admission to the fort which to me pensioners with 2 grandchildren cost a lot. Bad to buy something to eat or drink🤔 (Original) Ganska ok ! Inte som många attraktioner som på fd.Akvarium ...dessutom betalar man också entré till skansen som till mig pensionärer med 2 barnbarn kostade mycket. Dåligt att köpa något att äta eller dricka🤔

  • 5Johan H. 3 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Lucky this day - basically all the animals were active monkeys, snakes and crocodiles (Original) Hade tur denna dag - i princip alla djuren var aktiva såväl apor, ormar som krokodiler

    (Translated by Google) Not many animals and insects, the playground is very stingy and small for children. (Original) Inte många djur och insekter, lekparken är väldigt snål och liten för barn.

  • 4s. 3 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Not so much adapted to Corona. There was a lack of hand soap in toilets, there was a lack of hand alcohol in the new Baltic sea building where many buttons are pressed. There were many tourists from other countries who did not keep their distance. The lemurs were the best! Definitely worth the whole visit. (Original) Inte så mycket anpassat efter Corona. Saknades handtvål på toaletter, saknades handsprit i nya Baltic sea byggnaden där man trycker på många knappar. Det var många turister från andra länder som inte höll avstånd. Lemurena var bäst! Helt klart värt hela besöket.

  • 5Annelie V. 3 years ago

    (Translated by Google) Among the places to visit on a weekend, alone, the entrance fee was a bit expensive (Original) Hafta sonu ailecek gidilebilecek yerler arasında yanlız giriş ücreti biraz pahalı geldi

  • 5Christoffer A. 3 years ago
    (Translated by Google) Many animals in a small place and very fun for the children. Quite expensive one-time entry but the annual card is extremely cheap if you want to enter more times just like the fortification card (Original) Många djur på liten plats och väldigt roligt för barnen. Ganska dyrt engångsinträde men årskortet är extremt billigt om man vill in fler gånger precis som skansenkortet

  • 5Samuel J. 3 years ago
    (Translated by Google) There were a lot of interesting animals that you learned more about, even an adult that I learned something new. It was also pretty cheap in my opinion considering everything there was to do. Highly recommend to anyone who loves animals! (Original) Det fanns väldigt många intressanta djur som man lärde sig mer om, även en vuxen som jag lärde mig något nytt. Det var också ganska billigt enligt mig med tanke på allt det fanns att göra. Rekommenderar starkt till alla som älskar djur!

  • 5Dimitri R. 4 years ago
    An open air museum featuring rescued buildings from swedish history. The addition of the nordic animals is a real bonus. With animals housed in a zoo friendly environment. The aquarium and the monkeys felt a bit strange in this park as they did not fit in the theme of the park.

  • 5Owen W. 4 years ago
    This was a wonderful experience. Tons of cool animals to see. Definitely worth a day trip to check it out! Easy enough to get to via train and bus!

  • 5Alexandra De Maqua V. 4 years ago
    The place is amazing. One of my favourite place in world. I love every single moment inside. All animals have a lot of space, really clean and have really interesting expositions. I see a lot of babies, animals eating and interesting babes. AND THEY HAVE LOVELY RATS space. I only can see one, but I wish the have 3-4.

  • 5Zee C. 4 years ago
    Entrance ticket is 120 Swedish krona Great exhibitions of animals let visitors see lots of activities of the animals You can find monkeys, baboons , reptiles rodents , insects and exotic fish in there Just after entrance, you can find tens of baboons living in harmony which is enjoyable to observe All the animals are kept in individual aquariums inside the building, so it’s really easy to explore and see all the amazing wildlife Transparent glass catfish looks fantastic in an open aquarium with great decorations In a huge aquarium, you can find a little piece of dessert where herds dwarf mongooses live. They look so active and adorable.

  • 5Ankit G. 4 years ago
    Amazing place for animal lovers. Kids will love this place. If you’re visiting Skansen, adding Aquarium is a must and should be no-brainer. Moreover if you buy the tickets along side Skansen Aquarium, you will get a small discount as well.

  • 4Sky K. 4 years ago
    Nice ferry ride from Gamla Stan to the island. 8-10 mins walk from the terminal. It is quite run down inside or maybe it is weekdays. Very huge area to walk. It is open air and can be slippery during winter. There is an aquarium in the park.

  • 5F. 4 years ago
    Probably the best best I've seen. So well laid out, presented and looked after. I'd definitely recommend you make the time to go when visiting Skansen.

  • 4Jakob R. 5 years ago
    Well organized and lots of interesting animals to see! Had the ability to pet a snake and a spider at no additional cost which was a fun addition. The signs outside stated it'd be possible to pet stingrays but once inside they weren't even there, so that was misleading. The museum was smaller than I thought it'd be and the entrance area could be more open and with clearer signs on recommended route.
