The museum of natural history

The Swedish museum of natural history is one really worth a visit! Based in the area called Frescati a few kilometres from Stockholms main centre this museum holds more than nine million different plants, fossiles, animals (not live ones =) from the whole world making it a "studio 54" for scientists!

The museum was founded in 1819 by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences but this particular building, a quite impressive one, was finalized in 1916. Inside you can also visit Northern Europes biggest Imax-theatre in the Cosmonova theatre. On a 760 squaremetre large domeshaped screen spectators can see different movies of popular science.

If you want to do that it costs 70 swedish crowns (roughly nine US-dollars) but if you want to get into the museum it´s for free! Great is´nt it? A lot of Stockholms museums give free admitance which is something I really applaud since it was implemented a year or two back.
