What people are saying about Stockholm County

Informative, exciting and very much to see. Had been good with a guided tour as it was so big that it almost became difficult to navigate on your own. Alternatively a map to follow. Wished we had more time to walk around. According to daughter nine years so the best day so far on summer vacation!

Just a nice experience. Everything true to nature, relaxing for the soul! I can only recommend a visit to Skansen to anyone who wants to get to know old Sweden.

Really worth a visit. We spent 2 hours there and were very impressed. Bring a jacket as it’s chilly inside.

Very exciting ! If you are in Stockholm you have to see this.

Great ship! Very interesting piece of the Swedish history.
