Concierge.com's insider take:

For anyone with children, Skansen, the world's first open-air museum, is unmissable. Spread over several acres of Djurgården, it contains historic Swedish houses (dismantled and then reassembled here) peopled by museum employees in period dress. There's also a zoo with Scandinavian animals, as well as various cafés and restaurants. Yes, it sounds cheesy…which makes the actual experience all the more pleasant. The Swedes' enthusiasm for the place is infectious, the exhibits are genuinely interesting, and it's hard not to be won over by the wolves and elk in the zoo. You may notice that the trees near the petting zoo are festooned with pacifiers—it's a Swedish tradition for parents who want to wean their children off their pacifiers to come here so the children can give them to the kittens.
