Scandinavia’s largest center for science, Universeum presents six major interactive exhibits specifically geared toward children and young adults. Since this public center opened in 2001, it has offered a number of opportunities to foreign visitors and Swedish students, including the chance to debate with Nobel Prize winners and professors. Its seven floors boast various sections focused on different aspects of science, from crime investigation to rainforest ecosystems and Swedish marine life. The site is known for its massive aquariums and the hand-on experiments throughout the museum.

Liseburg is closed, but there many kid friendly places to check out. Kids had a great time exploring and playing in their spaces. The moon walk video was especially entertaining. more »
Very well laid out museum on 6 levels to enjoy for big and little children. With our 2 and 3 year old girls we spent approx 2 hours there and it was enough as they got to spend a lot of time enjoying.... more »
Amazing exhibitions! Animated dinosaurs (movements and sounds) on the top floor. My personal favorite. Multilevel Amazonian forest with sloths, monkeys, colorful birds and a diversity of marine life. Reptiles sections allows you to see plenty of different animals. Health exhibition is highly interactive and suits all ages.
Really nice place, highly recommend it for anyone interested in science or nature. When I was there the space exhibition was in construction, which was a bummer. The price was a bit high, but I heard they donate some of the money to charities that are working for a better environment
