Stunning combination of cultural history and a sculptor's masterpieces set in the gardens of his own home. A bit of a trek from Stockholm city centre but with stunning views across the harbour.

Millesgården is a must for those interested in both art and the surroundings. Carl Milles was one of the great contemporary artists and his home is now a museum that also have art exhibitions. The exhibitions are not always that interesting, but the garden is very special with a lot of his sculptures. It is situated on the island Lidingö,... More

Spent almost all of our two days in Stockholm in the city center, but ventured out to Millesgarden and were glad we did. Not hard to reach by subway, one-stop bus ride, and then half mile walk. Large number of interesting sculptures by Carl Milles displayed in a garden overlooking the water, plus his interesting collection of art. A fair... More

It's less about the garden and more about the statues/sculptures. It was peaceful and laid back. A nice break from the city bustle. From our hotel, we had to take the metro and then we walked for about 30 minutes. According to google maps, there was a bus we could take, but we decided to walk. It was a really... More

Neither my wife nor I are big sculpture fans, but we were both enchanted by the grounds, sculptures and displays at the Millesgarden. The gardens perfectly complement the moving yet fun sculptures. There is a popular café on site. It can be easily reached by subway/bus. This was our favorite sight in Stockholm. If we lived near Stockholm, we would... More

We didn't expect to find such a beautiful place. We got there very early and had to wait at the nearby hotel but we could enjoy the peace of the place with very few visitors. This house and garden is so beautiful. And the statues are really great, specially the hand of God! Pity that, in front, there's a huge... More

It was 40 years since my last visit, but well worth coming back! This is a peaceful place with pleasing statues and views - it is all about good art and class! Allow at least a couple of hours to take it all in. There is a good café; not particularly cheap, but then you are in Stockholm (well, actually,... More

Fairly easy to get to from Stockholm centre, take the underground to Ropsten then walk across the bridge to Lidingö, enjoying the views along the way. The grounds combine landscaped Italian-inspired gardens, steps, fountains and courtyards, and the house rises above in a beautiful sun-facing position. The original preserved rooms are gorgeously decorated and furnished, complimenting the impressive collection of... More
