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

For some reason this venue gets little publicity in the tour books, but it's a "hidden jewel". It was the former home of the richest woman in Sweden, finished in 1920 it was the home to just her and her husband as her three children had already left home. It consists of five floors each about 400 square meters (3,600... More

The Hallwyl couple built this house in their 50s with the intention of documenting their social status. He had the noble name, she had the financial power to showcase (due to her father being lumber baron) – so a truly impressive mansion, albeit an odd house, with architectural features ahead of its time, a bowling lane on the top floor,...

The quality of the architecture of this house alone would make the place worth a quick visit. The history of the house is interesting, and the patrons were clearly excessively rich, but had good taste. Beautiful marble, wonderful marquetry and some pretty decent furniture and porcelain. Not quite so sure about the artworks, which were all collected over a two... More

The bits of the Hallwyl museum that we could get to were really interesting, we got in using the Stockholm pass and paid to use an audio guide which was excellent. I really enjoyed the rooms we could see however I was a little dissapointed that some of the things I wanted to see could only be accessed as part... More

The museum has lots of interesting art and artifacts, and the rooms are lavishly decorated. It is worth it to go to the guided tour, so you can hear interesting stories about the family.

Outside it looks like a typical elder house in Stockholm, but inside it´s just corgeous! It´s great to see how the society lived in Stockholm a hundred years ago. We found this museum by chance but were very satisfied we did. It´s allowed to take photos in here - but as the booking clerk said: only, if you take good... More
