A very interesting museum, located near the Royal Dramatic Theatre. The house was built as a home for one of the richest families in Sweden at the end of the 19th century. I went on a giuded tour and highly recommend it! As we learned about the history of the museum and the countess Wilhelmina's art collection, we were shown... More

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

This is an unbelievable collection of treasures acquired by a wealthy woman, which was then gifted to the State. Every room you walk into has a "wow" factor at the amazing collection of things. I have visited twice, and would not hesitate to visit for a third or fourth time. A must see for Stockholm visitors.

One of the best palaces to visit in Stockholm if you like palaces and grand houses. This place is amazing, straight out of the 19th century! Very quiet and peacefull. Add this to your Stockholm experience! Only one English tour at 12:30 .... That was the only downside.

To enter the door into the Halwyl Palace is to enter the door into history. Wilhelmina von Halwyl was not only interested in art and travel. She was also interested in physical training and technical developments. Each morning she did physical exercise during one hour together with her servant, Each and every single item in the Halwyl Palace was documented... More

After hearing about her life and obsessive collections, I now want to read about her. She catalogued everything in her house, including the cookwear. Her collection of rugs-never have I seen such a quality of blue green color in rugs. Stamped leather wallpaper near first floor gift shop. Check website for English tour times before going. This is a gem.

We're really glad to have seen this place. It's not at all like the new building of this class in England in this period - William Morris, Philip Webb, Lutyens and so on - and the exterior does not at all match the interior, reflecting the different tastes of the builders. Full of wood panelling, the interior is rather heavy... More

I particularly liked thinking about the lady who had created the house and collection. It was interesting to speculate what she was like and her motivations. The portrait in the 'study' rather suggests that by the time she had succeeded in amassing such a collection that she was satisfied. It may feel a little cool, being always intended to be... More
