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.

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.

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
