Though we are looking at the aquarium, it's a good idear to look at Skansen it self, since you have to pay it's entrance-fee. Skansen it self was opened 11.10.1891 and is thereby the worlds first open air museum. Here you meet 150 different houses frome all of Sweden, most of them are 2-300 years old. The Skansen aquarium house was build in 1924 as the monkey house and the garden has since had a local and tropical zoopart. In the local zoo part, that infact is older than the open air museum. you meet typical Swedish animals like the Moose, reindeers, lynx's etc. Around the Aquarium, in the exotic part, the old giraf-house is home fore the colobus-monkeys. You also meet baboons and especiallt tropical birds in this area. In 2019 opened the Baltic Sea Science Center with 45 fish species from the Baltic Sea

The Skansen Aquarium it self opened in 1978 and has verry few fish's, but is known fore it's monkeys, reptiles and it's invertebrates.

Das gröste davon Liegt im Freilichtuseum Skansen, das aber auch shon tüpische Schwedische Tiere zeigt. Im Aquarium trift man auf Fischen, aber auch ) 9 Arten Affen und Vogelspinnen, die man anfassen darf.
