The Children’s Zoo – Lill-Skansen – has been the children's favourite since 1955. The new Lill-Skansen is a place where children can get to know animals and nature all year round. 

The Children's Zoo hosts about thirty different animal species. Outside there is a contact field with goats, a bunny hill, playground and rush court and a small stage for theater, music and talk about animals.  Indoors you can find a variety of Scandinavian small animals like toads and mice and household pets like kittens, guineapigs and chickens, and a classroom and a shop is also part of the zoo. Here, children of all ages can learn more about animals and how to take care of their pets.

Practical information The children's zoo area is mostly accessible to wheelchairs. For fire safety reasons, you can not bring strollers indoors, they are to be left outside at the shop or at the stone wall where you can find a stroller parking. There is no wardrobe for outerwear but there are four toilets, also adapted for disabled and with baby changing facilities. Everyone should wash their hands after contact with the animals so there are several outdoor sinks with hot and cold water. The water is also drinkable.

Thanks to a sponsorship agreement between Skansen and Stockholm's Consumer Association, the animals and you as a visitor can enjoy this larger and more modern facility. Since 1955, millions of visitors have enjoyed Lill-Skansen - but only in the summer. The new Lill-Skansen is open throughout the year. So, come and visit Skansen's newest attraction when you´re in town!
