This is one of the most expensive attractions in Stockholm and there is no reduction for seniors. None of the water features were working when we visited and that detracted from the overall experience a bit. The sculptures were interesting and overall it is a peaceful and relaxing place. It is quite a steep climb up to the main house... More

If you enjoy a combination of outdoor art and historical home this is very nice. The Cafe is quite simple and nice. The island is very easy to access by bus and while we did not tour much of the island, it looks to have some beautiful homes.

Great exhibition of sculptor Miles' sculptures, many of them inspirated by Greek-Roman mythology. As he was also an archaeologist (participated in excavation at Pompei), there is also a little galery with antique sculptures.

We spent a morning at Millesgarden, the home and art studio for artists Carl and Olga Milles. The gardens were lovely. The entrance is subtle and understated. We enjoyed the special Anne-Karin Furunes exhibit. The museum shop was nice with a nice selection of goods. I found the gardens and sculptures to be inspiring and peaceful. We had a wonderful...

I actually guided a touristing couple in the direction of this place, and when I got here with them, the manager at Millesgården told me to keep guiding them inside. Never been here before. But a nicely spent afternoon.

The exhibition hall at Millesgården (through which you enter) is nothing special. It's when you leave the hall and head for the garden and the Artist's home that this becomes worth the trip to Lidingö. Very nice, quaint, special.

This is a true gem off the beaten path. It is well worth the detour though. The sculptures by Milles are engaging and interesting and the setting is so peaceful.

The most charming museum in Stockholm with a big sculpture park and a spectacular view. Lovely in summer and autumn and exciting in christmas times with christmas lights in the garden. A bit far away from centre (30-40 min from central Stockholm by tunnelbana and bus)...

Not everyone understand that this museum is open all year around, but it is really worth a visit at any time. Beautiful sculptures and a fantastic garden with a great view of Stockholm.
