Perhaps a half is rather overstating it as the house belonged to a very rich countess and has been left as it was in 1930 when she died. The rooms are decorated in different styles but our visit was slightly marred by the fact that a private exhibition of various odd collectibles such as handbags, shoes, toy cars and motor... More

This is one of my favorite museums. The guides all have their favourite rooms and favorite stories to tell, so no matter how many times you visit you'll always see and hear something new about the family who lived here. Lived here? In a museum? Yes, this museum was actually the home of a family whose matriarch collected e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g you... More

The museum is definitely a huge disappointment. We were expecting a beautiful old family house with ornaments, furniture etc from the old days. They were there, but you really had to look for them between the modern paintings, Jimmy Choo shoes and nowadays dresses. It was small and we saw the whole thing within 20 minutes. This was a waste... More

Due to recommendations on trip advisor, we were expecting a nice impression of the history of a Stockholm family and house. The entrance ticket only gives you permission for the 1st floor of the house, which consists of 5 rooms. The house it selve is nice, but they have places several modern items in the historical rooms. It was a... More

I'm so sad that we didn't have time to see this museum properly. It was almost the closing time on our last day of visiting Stockholm. We had to walk it through with such a hurry that I'm shame to say that I have even been there. But this is absolutely beautiful house with amazing atmosphere and great collection. I'm... More

One of my favorite house museums ever...the curator of the collection was the lady of the house and her intention was to have her house and collections turn into a museum upon her death. MANY genres including jewelry, pottery, porcelain, silver, toys, Asian works, armor, furniture ad infinitum. She had high-end tastes and was obsessive about labeling and recording all... More

The museum is very small but totally worth a visit. The old home in which it is housed is beautiful and the collection is lovely. It may be limited in scope, but I love the idea that it was all collected to the couple's personal taste rather than based on the "importance" of the items. Plan to spend an hour--not... More

This couple who lived here in the beginning of the century was obsessed with collecting things and marking everything down in books. The lady wanted her home to become a museum after the couples death and oh, how happy we are about that today! Amazing home to see!

Hallwyl house is a beautiful home, with a collection of precious art objects from the 16-19th centuries, used as functional "decor" of a love nest built by a wealthy couple at the end of the XIX century. It *could* have been amazing - but the people that work as staff (reception, ticket purchase, guides for the Swedish tours) ruined it... More

Come on, was this a joke? Yes it was a beautiful home, but to call it a museum or recommend this as a destination cannot be serious. It was discombobulated, dark and short. There were hardly and descriptions and what few there were, were not in English. I am becoming dismayed with TA. On this trip to Stockholm most of... More
