"Technical Museum" Top 5 Page for this destination Tekniska Museet - Technical Museum Tip by Sjalen


Having visited Deutsches Museum in Munich, I am not easily impressed by other technical museums, but this one will still entertain you for a good while. It has a small hall with cars and planes, a section on robotics which can be fun, an exhibition on telephones which is more interesting than it sounds, and my own favourite: the mine. Whilst they might have got that idea from Munich and this is smaller, they've made a good job of it, and on top of that Sweden is of course a mining company so the bit on modern mining is quite interesting and goes on with the Ferrum exhibition on steel in general. A lot of it is well signed in English. On top of that, there is a shop and cafes. Children will love the museum as they can visit Technorama (adults will also learn things here) where they can tread a huge wheel (see picture in the childrens travelogue), explore a TV studio, try to make a cathedral rose window and much more. If they can only get all their hands-on things to work, it would be even better, but sufficient fun can be had as most things work. This is one of the few museums where you still have to pay entrance but it won't ruin you and is definately worth it.
