Stockholm is a perfect city to spend the autumn holidays in, and the whole city invites you to a mix of culture and Halloween celebrations. Here are the places that I found that do something extra during the autumn holidays or that are just a little scary or fun.
1. The time machine at the Nordic Museum
The Nordic Museum takes you through a time machine in the evening activity "Night at the museum" and through a magical portal to the exhibition about children from 1870 to now. You can also paint your own monster. Don't forget to buy a ticket in advance.
