Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, has much to offer families with children.

Get around

What's the matter with all the gay nannies?According to urban legend, a foreigner in Stockholm was surprised by the young men pushing strollers around Stockholm. These are fathers, not nannies. Sweden has two months of mandatory paternity leave.

Public transport

Buses give free rides to a stroller with a child, and one accompanying adult.

Children younger than 7 ride public transport for free, but must be accompanied by a adult with a good ticket. On weekends from Friday noon, six children younger than 12 years old, ride for free with one accompanying adult.


Most museums are free of charge for children.

  • Junibacken is based on Astrid Lindgren's works.
  • The Vasa Museum is suitable for children.
  • The National Museum of Natural History offers interactive guides to Earth's history, as well as Scandinavian, Arctic and Antarctic wildlife.
  • The Science and Technology Museum has a science centre, Teknorama, and a big exhibition hall with vehicles of all kinds.
  • The Music and Theatre Museum, Musik- och teatermuseet, has hands-on musical instruments.






Toilets might be hard to find in Stockholm. Most hotels have toilets with nursing table, formally limited to house guests, but usually available on request in the lobby.
