Nutty museum

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.

This wasn't what I was expecting to be honest. After the endless opulence of the Royal Palace I thought it would be interesting to see how people lived in a historic house. This house was put together by a wealthy couple, loading it with all their precious collected treasures, with a view to creating a museum. Their children had already... More

I enjoyed the Hallwyl but in hindsight, it wouldn't be top of my list in Stockholm. It is a truly beautiful home with amazing art and architecture but if you've seen a stately home before it is nothing unique. I also expected the exhibition to be much bigger - only one floor (the entertaining rooms) are open to the public,... More

This building was built between 1893 and 1898 for Count Walter Bon Hallwyl and his wife Wilhelmina. The Palace was fitted out with the latest inventions ( electricity, telephones, central heating etc) and reminded me of Mentmore NC. It also housed the art and antique collections made by the countess and the interior is reminiscent of the houses created in... More

The house/palace once belonged to the Count and Countess von Hallwyl. It was donated to the Swedish state in 1920. In 1938, it opened as a museum. A small palace located in the very centre of Stockholm. Built 1893-98. Very nice and informative guided tours. Theatre and music presented during the summer.

This museum is set behind an unimposing facade, immediately behind the waterfront from where most short cruises start from. It is readily available by bus or tram. Be warned that it closes at 4pm. We arrived just 15 minutes before then and did not really have time to fully appreciate the finery and treasures of this rich merchant's house. It... More

The Halwylska palace is an amazing place to visit, giving insights to how the very rich lived some 100 years ago. The selection of marble slabs for the stairs, the dining room with its hidden orchestra bay, the novelty (for the time) of bathrooms with running water. And then all the priceless artworks and trophys which the owner collected to... More
