This was such a beautiful private home, preserved on the main island in Stockholm. A very wealthy countess collected beautiful works of art, tapestries, porcelain, armor, and furniture, decorating an elegant and gorgeous mansion in the early 1900s. Her house has been preserved perfectly.
We paid 60 SEK for admission and saw ten rooms on the first floor (including smoking room, billiard room, porcelain room, armory, morning room, dining room). The second floor is only accessible on private tours, which are daily in Swedish and Saturdays only in English. We were unable to see these - but it didn't matter - the rooms we did see were amazing. I have seen a LOT of fine houses/estates around Europe, but this one was unique.
Also, we paid 20 SEK for an audio guide, which was very nice, but a bit superfluous. Just after showing your tickets there is a written guide (in multiple languages including English) which is an exact transcription of the audio guide. It definitely helps to have some sort of guidance as you go through the rooms, to explain the artists and source of various works.
