Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde, originally the home of Prince Eugen, became state-owned after the Prince's death in accordance with his will, and is now among the most-visited art museums in Sweden. In the Mansion the Prince's Private Apartments remain mostly unchanged, while the two upper floors and the Gallery building are used for temporary exhibitions or for exhibiting works by the Prince or from his collections. The estate is set in a beautiful parkland, featuring centuries-old oak trees. Its situation by the inlet to Stockholm harbour presents the visitor with stunning views of the water. Welcome to Sweden's most beautiful art museum!

My friends and I went here mainly for the views, and they were not the best. You can go here by taking the tram (I think Tram #7 runs here, don't know for sure) from the city center. If you're staying in Stockholm for a short period of time, this is not worth going to. Skip it.

We visited on a Thursday afternoon in April and the house was very busy. Apparently it is one of the most popular museums in Sweden. I find it difficult to see why. The paintings are not that impressive and although the interior of the house is very stylish it is not in any way outstanding - perhaps it's a Swedish... More

Well within walking distance of the city centre. Recommend walking rather than the tram if the weather is good, as the stroll through the park is very pleasant. Reasonable attempt to provide English titles. This is a small museum or gallery. Really one to one and a half hours is plenty of time.

This place has a castle of Prins Eugens, who apparently was an artist. We spent our time there outside just enjoying the view and the atmosphere. It's so tranquil and you just want to stay there for a while. To go there: take the tram (spårvagn) from Sergels torg towards Waldemarsudde and stop at Waldemarsudde.

The castle on the island belonged to Prince Eugen, who had no interest in politics. Studied painting in France and became a very good painter as well as a great designer.

It is a very nice museum in a beautiful spot and you get to see the house, the Prince's paintings and a guest exhibition. Definitively worth a visit if you have more than just a couple of days in Stockholm

I have a soft spot for this place. From Downtown just outside Kulturehuset, there is an aboveground train that is new which takes you directly to Waldemarsudde. So it is easy access for visitors. Once there there is a lovely garden and waterfront you can enjoy. The entrance has a museum of exhibits that is also connected to the former... More

Prins Eugen was an artist and supporter of the arts. His summer "cottage" (read: small palace) has been made into a museum where a variety of art exhibits appear. The place is accessible by streetcar trolley that starts at Sergels Torg. From the streetcar stop it's about a km walk to the house along a beautiful waterfront. There is food... More
