"Museum of Biology" Top 5 Page for this destination Biologiska Museet - Museum of Biology Tip by Sjalen

 
 

This museum, at the foot of Skansen Open Air Museum with all its animals, show typical animal exhibitions but in a different way. It was the first ever natural history museum to use dioramas, those "natural environment" backgrounds to stuffed animals and some are painted by the famous Swedish nature painter Bruno Liljefors. You should also go here if you are interested in architecture as Agi Lindegren's wonderful building is itself a sight, based on Norwegian church architecture and with lovely wood carvings, so popular in the Nordic Romantic era when the museum was built.
