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

This museum is must-see for those interested in the 19th century or interior design and decoration. It is unusual in that the museum, formerly a private residence, is just as the last owner left it when it was bequeathed to the city. The tour in English is thoroughly recommended and although it is currently only offered on Saturdays, is well... More

A house that was build by a very rich couple some generations ago. Then it was the most modern house that money could buy, and since only this couple lived there, it has become a museum. Very interesting. But, no elevators, a lot of stairs so be prepared to climb if you want to visit.

A collection and a home in the same place. The palace of the Hallwyl family store a unique collection of what could be of interest in the end of the 19th century.

We visited this attraction on our first full day in Stockholm. It is essentially a mansion. The rooms are sometimes gaudy (not quite comparable to Hearst Castle, but the same idea), but it provided a very interesting look into the lives of a wealthy family from the last century. We did not go on the official tour but found the... More

Before anything else : a part of the house is only accessible with the guided tour. Sad, because that place is absolutely lovely and now it keep bothering me about what I missed. I do have memories about all the other rooms I got to see and I am glad I did! It's basically a sneak peak into a relaxed... More

Hallwyl Museum is an excellent palace in the center of Stockholm. Although I had never heard about it before, I think it is one of the best buildings inside. Very rich furniture, ceilings, piano, objects, walls. Nice rooms, a lot of porcelains, guns. It travels you back. Absolutely recommended (it's free with the Stockholm card).

Stockholm has such wonderful museums it is hard to choose which one to skip if you are short on time. This house used to belong to a wealthy family and is now a museum. It exhibits the personal collection of the lady of the house. There is a gallery of paintings, sculptures, an armory, a room dedicated to Chinese art,... More
