This is a world of magic that invites young and old to explore together. You can spend a whole day in our building without exhausting all the possibilities on offer, or you can choose to just drop in for a few hours and concentrate on exactly what you and your family are interested in.

What can you do at Tom Tits Experiment?

We have four floors full of hundreds of experiments that attract children, adults, and everyone in between. The experiments tempt you into learning a little bit more about science, technology, physics, maths, geography, biology, how people work, illusions, and much, much more. All we ask is that you leave “Right” and “Wrong” at the door and prepare yourself to light the fire that we all have within us. In addition, the park with its exciting experiments is open between May and September. We have a buffet restaurant, a café that serves organic produces, and a room where you can eat your own food. Tom Tits Experiment is a perfect outing for the complete family. We are only 35 minutes from Stockholm, and it’s easy to get here by car or commuter train from Stockholm Centralstation.
