- The small, brown building that houses the Biological Museum is next to the entrance to Skansen. Completed in 1893, its old Nordic style is interesting, especially when you see the curious double spiral staircase inside. There are several displays of stuffed animals that are well-made reconstructions of their natural habitats. The sheer number of stuffed animals testify the expertise of the taxidermists. It is evident in one special creation, the surreal rabbit-hawk. By placing beautiful outspread wings on a rabbit, one taxidermist had succeeded in creating a strange creature popular from Swedish farmer folklore. To reach the museum, take buses 44 or 47 to Djurgården from T-Centralen, or the ferry from Slussen.
