On the guided tours you get to see more of the house than if you visit on your own. Hallwyska once a private home with its fine interiors and exquisite decoration, with focus on the displayed objects d´art.New is a very beautiful courtyard were you can enjoy a glass of wine and something light to eat

It might seems to be a just a rich family house but look inside you will discover amazing find. Bowling alley for example, who would have thought. And three taps in the kitchen, one cold, one hot and the third? Go find out yourself.

A house museum with guided tours in Swedish and English. You need to take a tour to see the entire house; otherwise you can only see the public rooms.

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
