Although Pippi Longstocking, the children’s character created by Astrid Lindgren, is one of the most famous, many other stories have been written by Swedish writers. Junibacken brings you closer to this world of storytelling at a museum to be found on Djurgården Island, in the centre of Stockholm, that is dedicated to Swedish children’s literature in general but with particular emphasis on the characters created in the works by Astrid Lindgren.

At Junibacken, visitors can travel on a themed train journey through the various backdrops to her stories before arriving at Villa Villekulla, Pippi Longstocking’s house in Story Square, where the youngest visitors can ride Alfonso, her Appaloosa Horse, play, run or dress up.

There is also a restaurant offering fantastic views of the city, a theatre, a temporary exhibition hall and don’t forget to visit the bookshop, where you’ll find all the stories in a variety of languages.

Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 17:00. Also open on Mondays from June to August. Open every day from 10:00 to 18:00 in July.
