The guided tour allows you to visit more of the home, while the self-guided only permits you to see one floor (8-10 rooms). The self guided tour does have a laminated book provided to offer some history and explanations behind each room you visit. It's a thought-provoking view into the life of the rich in the late 19th century. Not... More

Let me be very straight with this; take the guided tour. If not you will only see small amount of everything (3 rooms only out of +10 with tour) and the story behind the museum might be difficult to follow. The story is as fascinating as the museum. Very small children though might get bored but it's done in 1... More

Beautiful architecture, wonderful decoration and fascinating history. Even the single floor available on the basic admission is well worth it, with about eight lovely rooms and some incredible collections of armaments and china. It would be worth checking to see when the tours are available so that you could see the additional rooms also. Easily accessible by public transit.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Hallwyl Museum, but I wish we had been able to join a tour. The museum is lovely, but you only see one floor unless you are on a tour. We visited towards the end of the day and the last tour had been several hours earlier. The museum was pretty empty when we... More

This Museum is a house situated in the heart of Stockholm and very easily accessible by bus, tram or Metro. The adult fee is SEK90 which is expensive since it only permits you to see one floor. To see the whole house, you must pay extra for a guide, the tour being only in Swedish. Sadly, the Museum does not... More

It's not a bad place to visit, but without a guide, it's hard to understand the culture and stories behind each room.

I have visited Halwylska many times over the years, every time with a splendid guided tour. Now a while ago. When returning this year, the option to make a self guided tour was available (with an audio guide for 20SEK extra). SInce the only guided group tour of the day had already started, we opted for the self guided tour.... More

Museum is located in city centrum, near theater. This museum is in old house, standing by pretty street. There are many rooms, in which you can see old furnitures, sculptures and every-day items . Staff is very helpful. This house has very modern kitchen and bathroom (very modern for people who lived previous century) and this is interesting. So if... More

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
