Hallwyl House was donated to the Swedish state on the condition that it would remain unchanged. Today, the house has been preserved as it was when Countess von Hallwyl donated the house. The museum features preserved rooms from the late Victorian period in Sweden giving a glimpse into the lifestyles of the nobility in Stockholm at the time.

Since February 2016, the entry is free of charge, so this is definitely a place worth visiting! It is a well preserved house, giving an insight to how a very rich couple lived over a hundered years ago. The staff was very service minded and were happy to explain things to us. For example the tool in the kitchen that... More

The house that once belonged to the Count and Countess von Hallwyl became this tiny but very pretty museum. A must see if you're into the 19th century aristocratic lifestyle.

Stunning, beautiful and the guides really know what to tell to keep your interest. If you want to know the ancient very upper class in Stockholm- spend 90 minutes here. Very central location as well

If you like "Downton Abbey" this is the place to go to. Everything in the house is in tact. Nothing has been changed due to countess von Hallwyls will. The countess wanted to keep all things she owned and kept a catalogue over all the things she owned - for us to see. This lady was quite remarkable since she... More

What I liked about this museum is its authenticity. It is still the same as it used to be when it served as a family home, even the personnel wearing the same uniform.

A very rich couple built this palace in the center of Stockholm around 1895 with the sole purpose that it would be preserved for coming generations to visit.

Incredible "time capsule" with fantastic works of art as well as ordinary household items from a century ago. The guides are incredible and the "theatrical" guided tours are not to be missed.

Hallwylska never disappoints: excellent guide, quirky old house with a fascinating history. This museum should be as much of a "must" as the Wasa Museum or the Royal Palace.
