The Baltic Sea Science Center in Stockholm is part of the open-air museum Skansen, and showcases the Baltic marine environment and its threats, using aquariums, exhibitions, and educational activities.
The seeds of this project were in 2011, when the Baltic Sea 2020 foundation, established by Björn Carlson, began discussing with the museum Skansen the possibility of constructing a marine education centre. Planning began in March 2015, and construction started in 2016. The exhibits and content were developed in collaboration with Stockholm University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala.

Okej aquarium, but seems to be stuck in time, most ecosystems lacks heavily in natural environment materials. Especially the limnic systems, that reflect low knowledge or resources regarding ecosystem design, which is a shame for the fee of over 200SEK to access the place. Being an ambassadour for nature, this is not ok, for me at least. Pros are the nice rock formations and that the place is very clean.

Relatively small aquarium but packed full of fish ! The rainforest section really is something else

A great combination of zoo, Swedish culture and food place. Recommended,especially for families.

If you love lemurs, snakes band big fish tanks. This is the place to be.

Great place for relaxing day with kids. Many buildings from different regions of Sweden with staff wearing clothing from old times showing and explaining daily life of our grand grand grand fathers. It is not only a skansen, it has also lots of animals, some of them running freely. One of the best tourist attractions in Stockholm.

Hurry, I think they are closing soon. Really sad! Magic place for kids

Great reptiles, monkeys and fishes. It's especially great that you can walk amongst the monkeys. There is however a lot more in Swedish than in English

This place is amazing. This was our third visit and we just loved it! My son got to see the world's most venomous snake and was so excited. And proud. You also get to touch a snake and a spider. If you dare. The gift shop is full of great gifts. If you're in Stockholm you should definitely visit Skansen-akvariet. Snakes, monkeys, spiders, and many other exotic animals and insects. Who doesn't like that?!

We enjoyed our visit to the Skansen Aquarium. They had a Boa Constrictor and a Tarantula available for very careful petting. We loved it, personal was very friendly and competent!

It's one of the few places to see such animals in Sweden, and it's actually really good. They have most things, and it's quite big. It's just a bit pricey, first paying entrance fee and then basically doubling that up to enter the aquarium.

Quite small but still worth the extra entrance fee (100 kr/adult). Nice to be able to walk so close to the lemurs and other monkeys in the rain forrest. Cool crocodiles and nice salt water aquariums.
