Universeum »

We have tested Universeum with a girl of 3 years. She digged "sharks" and the monkeys in the rain forest, the birds were so-so ... the stairs and elevators were fun. Although the department PULSE took points. There, she rode on the horse, went on monster floor, made large bubbles with a contraption. But what was the most fun?playground in the basement. Tip: bring a pair of indoor shoes to the children if you are here in the wintertime. Had liked to have seen that it was not so expensive to enter..
LisebergLiseberg
One of the children's favorite places during the summer. Take rides and go by roller coasters.Here's Flying Elephants, Pony Carousel and Bumper Cars and more. Take a break and eat popcorn, ice cream or cotton candy. Do you want to compete here lots of different games.

Liseberg »

We tested Bunny Wonderland with a 3-year old. She had lots of fun, ran and climbed and skied rush channel ... was almost hard to keep up. Tip: Enter phone number on your child's arm, turn on the a reflective vest or bright colors so you can quickly see where your child is located. In Bunny Land, they can easily run away ....

Barnens Museum/Gothenburg City Museum»


Annika och Helen gillar inte!!! We have tested the "playroom" and we found that to be most suited for toddlers 6mths-2,5years. The slide is really the smallest. The surface and the height to the ceiling is there! Why not exploit it to the max! Maybe install a high slide (kids love to ride a slide), more toys such as small strollers, more small toys to play with, pens and notebooks, small tables and chairs, puzzles, dolls, etc.

When it comes to animals, it´s maybe the childrens zoo, which attracts the most. During the summer, children can pet the kids and rabbits. Also the opportunity to ride a horse.

Annika och Helen tycker om!!! The playground Plikta get almost full marks. Well with all the toys, slides, the big whales, small trampolines, sandboxes etc.. Great to have lawns all around, you can buy ice cream close by and the opportunity to warm food and changing diapers for the little ones. It have been great if they could built one more house where you can warm yourselves during wintertime. Would have been great!

Trädgårdsföreningen - Centrum
Alfons Åbergs kulturhus »

Annika och Helen tycker om!!! We have tested Alfons Åberg's Kulturhus with a 3-year old. Super fun, she thought. Does she set records in the number of times you can ride a slide. Travelling by helicopter, go to the movies and working in a grocery she liked too. Potter about in the kitchen and call in the phone booth was fun. On the top floor, it was a little quieter where you could cuddle and read books and play with toys. Up there was also a small cute child toilet. We had a brake with snack on their veranda outside, overlooking the canal.

Annika och Helen gillar inte!!! We would have preferred that it was not so pricey entrance fee. Should be cheaper for parents who do not play...

Gothenburg Natural History MuseumGothenburg Natural History Museum
Suitable for older children, but the smaller can also come here (around 2 years and older). Can be a little difficult for the little kids to understand that they must not "pat" all the animals. Here children can see animals from all over the world! There are fish, crabs, look into the insect department, see the big elephant, lions, turtles, polar bears .. Do not miss the great The Malm whale and Naturaliekabinettet with the two twins.

A lot of stairs but there is a small elevator. A cafe on the ground floor and a small shop to shop in. Can sometimes be crowded in the cafe. Leave the stroller outside!

Children between the age 6-12 can get a member ship in the Rock club. Children will be invited to different events by mail. Register here.

Located in Slottsskogen at Linnéplatsen.
Göteborgs Naturhistoriska Museum

Annika och Helen tycker om!!! We made a visit with the two children of 4 years and the little girl of 2 years. Here are many stuffed animals at this museuem... The small 2-year became afraid of the big elephant, and dared not go past ..... She in 4 years got some practice of how many animal names that she could.....
There is a large room one second floor where kids can "run around" but not so much to see and do there. Is a "fish pond" on the floor to step on. Summa ry: Does not fit so well for the youngest children. The children should probably be of school age just to get something out of it. Obviously, it can be a little exciting for even the small children due to the big space to running around in.

Annika och Helen gillar inte!!! We would have liked to expand the large surface area that were on the second floor with something interesting for children between 0-5 years.
Tip: Visit the playground Plikta in Slottskogen (just below the museum) if children need a little more running...museet)

We have tested the Gothenburg Maritime Museum. This time without the kids :). It is an interesting place for both adults and children. To walk aboard destroyer Småland and try to imagine what life on board was. Some climbing down and up steep stairs became too. The most difficult thing was to get down into the submarine. I do not understand how to work aboard a submarine - ugh, how crowded. Very interesting.

A perfect children's playground in the center. The swings were fun and most obviously the slides. They did not want to go home! Very good choice for kids! The environment is of course also absolutely wonderful!
