Things To do in Stockholm

Stockholm is a vast city with a lot of things to do. So much that we had to make a separate post with things we didn’t get to cover in our last post. We recommend you read our review post on Stockholm before diving into this one.

Spirits Museum

The Museum of Spirits is situated on the island of Djurgården. The exhibitions draw both from the history of drinking and art.  The exhibitions draw both from the history of drinking and art. The collections include some 850 commissioned works by artists such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst and Louise Bourgeois for Absolut Vodka, the vodka brand formerly owned by the Swedish state.

It was a fun museum to visit. We particularly liked the art part of the museum.

Nordic Museum

Nordiska Museet is Sweden’s largest museum of cultural history. It’s located in Djurgården. It’s a large impressive looking building from inside and outside with many floors and a lot to see. An everyday palace, and a place of stories about the life and people of the Nordic region. The museum looks at every aspect of Nordic life, from food to clothing. An absolute must if visiting Stockholm. 3-4h. There were different displays on all of the floors. The building itself is already worth seeing. We recommend it for

The Butterfly House/Haga Ocean

The Butterfly House covers over 3000 square meters and the environment inside is completely tropical. The temperature is never less than 25 degrees during the day, and at night it is always at least 18 degrees. During a single year, several thousand butterflies live here, and every time you visit us here there are at least 700 different varieties of butterfly species to see.

The Butterfly House Haga Ocean includes one of Scandinavia’s largest shark aquariums. Large and small reef sharks, as well as numerous exotic, colorful fish, swim together in the 30-meter long aquarium that holds 1.2 million liters of water. At the aquarium, you’ll find the Blacktip Reef Shark.

one of the biggest coastal sharks in the world, easily distinguishable by its very high first dorsal fin.

Mall of Scandinavia

Stockholm’s and Scandinavia’s largest shopping center – Westfield Mall of Scandinavia. Here you will find 224 stores and restaurants offering the very best from Swedish and international brands. It’s one of the biggest shopping malls we’ve visited and a must if you love shopping.

Stockholm City Hall

Stockholm City Hall is one of Sweden’s most famous buildings and one of the capital’s most visited tourist attractions. The City Hall is open to the public through guided tours only. Guided tours are held daily in Swedish and English at certain hours. The tower is open during the summer months (May to September) and tours are available in several languages. During the same period, you can also climb up inside the tower and enjoy a fantastic view over the city.


If you want to get the best value on things to do, the Stockholm pass by Stromma gives you a good deal. You get free entry to 60+ top Stockholm attractions, free boat and bus tours of Stockholm, and a free Guidebook. A perfect way to lower costs.

These have been places we loved visiting in Stockholm, you may just love it too.
