On the same island that contains the Vasa Museum, but all the way at other end. Very good art collection in a former mansion. Some good Munck works. Don't make the mistake we did and take the tram and walk. There's a bus that takes you right there.

Very quaint little gallery with Swedish/Nordic painters and sculptures. The café is good with tasty cakes and good service, but the big salon is decorated with stupidly large tables.

An excursion by ferry to the Thielska Galleriet in Stockholm is perfect for a half day. Upon alighting from the ferry, a delightful walk along the shore past elegant mansions and then through shady woods brings the visitor to the former home of super-rich banker, Ernest Thiel. The paintings displayed in it are mostly by Carl Larsson,Edvard Munck and Liljefors,... More

This "house" shows a collection of Thiel, which includes Swedish painters and several works of Munk. It is not a big gallery, however, it was a cozy and comportable place to visit. There is a cafe where you can enjoy the view and relax.

.This gallery isn't ranked as a top site We took the bus and went there. We found a beautiful collection. We didn't know most of the painters but Munch collection was worth the entire trip. Just great !

The Theil Gallery is a major private art collection in Stockholm. The art displayed stems from a quite narrow time interval, I would rank about a quarter of the collection as high international class (in particular some Carl Larsson and August Strindberg works) whereas much of the rest has not stood the test of time. However, even more beautiful than... More

We took the number 69 bus....the bustle of the city faded and the scenery quickly changed...a green quiet space on the water, the Theil Gallery. A chance to really see incredible masterful art in a space that allows you to absorb real beauty without the throb of a crowd. Encompassed is also the family connection you get with this venue....

An amazing place. A 19th century villa turned into a fantastic art gallery presenting all the important Scandinavian painters. Take bus 69 from the city. Or, if you are already at Djurgarden, enjoy a very nice walk.

I thoroughly recommend visiting the Thiel Gallery set beautifully in a park on Djurgarden. I enjoyed so much walking through the rooms housing a unique collection of paintings by Scandinavian artists. Also, the history of the owner of the residence, Ernst Thiel and his family is very interesting.

We accidentally discovered the existence of this entrancing museum through a flyer at the tourist office. Though English was not well supported--I had to plead for English translations of the Swedish captions-- the high quality of the artwork made up for it. A really enjoyable, individual place with an incredible backstory. Well worth a visit for any art lover.
