Its seven floors boast various sections focused on different aspects of science, from crime investigation to rainforest ecosystems and Swedish marine life. The site is known for its massive aquariums and the hand-on experiments throughout the museum.

Amazing exhibitions! Animated dinosaurs (movements and sounds) on the top floor. My personal favorite. Multilevel Amazonian forest with sloths, monkeys, colorful birds and a diversity of marine life.
