a place to be alone... sounds strange, but it's true. Try go alone and face each sculpture inside the house... especially in the big room and on the greek aisle... think that each piece has more than 2000 years. Really crazy... and the outside, the garden, is also beautiful... I smoked a "havano" there

Nice museum with a view over Stockholm. Also nice for a meal or coffee. Best if the weather is nice as a part of the experience is outside.

We were here for the exposition "Pompei". Interesting and I would like to inform families with children that they have questionnaires for the sculpture garden and a separate one for the exposition. It's meant for kids of 5 years or more. Our girls of 9, 10 & 12 were running around to find the best answers and searching sculptures to... More

Not centrally located but absolutely worth the trip, which is quite easier and quicker than it may seem (metro + bus + walk, excellent directions on their website). The grounds with their view of the water and the sculptures are stunning. You will see angels flying and hands of God and feel like you’re soaring yourself.

This museum is great - if you like sculptures, and and want a fabulous view of Stockholm. It costs about GBP 15 to get in and for that money you get to see the current exhibition indoors, the park with all of Carl Milles statues, his house with the fantastic studio. However, if you are feeling a bit peckish and... More

All sculptures there are amazing art pieces. The beautiful old house that once served as a residence to Mr. and Mrs. Milles is now used as a museum, and the gardens serve as an open air museum for a hundred of medium to big sculptures. A must see place if you plan a trip to Stockholm.

A really nice place to go around when the sun is shining ! Not so close from the city center, so not the first place to visit if you stay just a week end in Stockholm !

The sculptor's works - stone figures and delicate, ingenious fountains - are meticulously displayed in the terraced garden of his home. The fountains are joyous, some of the sculptures more melancholy, some awe-inspiring - one can sit andcontemplate them, or the views across the water.

A total insight into an artistic family, their work and passions. We went here for lunch (which was great) and then spent half the afternoon walking through the eclectic gardens surrounded by Carl Milles sculptures, water features nd beautiful landscape. There is also a small gallery with changing exhibitions. Easy access on public transport
