Stockholm's most popular cultural heritage museum reflects Sweden as a country and the changing seasons. Come to the heart of Stockholm, a dynamic open-air museum and animal park with something to offer visitors of all ages.
For many, Skansen is best known as an animal park - home to Nordic animals including moose, wolves, brown bears, seals and wolverines. Others come to explore Swedish cultural heritage by visiting the many houses and farm buildings from the 18th century onwards that have been transported here from all over Sweden. All the Swedish high days and holidays are celebrated here in traditional style - highlights are Midsummer and the Christmas market.
