The palace answers to those interested to have a glimpse in the home of an aristocratic family at the turn of last century. The level with the bedrooms was hasting a mask/clown exposition, disturbing and contrasting to the whole of the palace. Take the guided tour, as it permits access to many interesting rooms, to the kitchen and garage.

1) This is an actual winter home of Count and Countess Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, amazingly rich people, the house was completed in 1898. You can take either a guided or self-guided tour (recommended). 2) The guided tours are in Swedish, there are some in English but only at certain times (like Saturdays at 1:30pm), so call ahead. 3)...

This house was a wonderful surprise. Every detail of this home is exquisite--no expense was spared. You can take a guided tour or there are very descriptive cards in each area that will give you all of the necessary information on the highlights of that room. I found the finishes used in this home to overshadow those in Drottingham Palace... More

This is free and is worth the visit, it is small but the rooms are filled with interesting and unique items. Hard to imagine folks lived there. It is worth the visit.

This is one of the coolest attractions in Stockholm but also one of the most overlooked.The house is gorgeous and huge and very fun to visit. I highly recommend taking the guided tour. It is very cheap, and the museum is free, so you really get a great value. With the tour they will tell you the story of the... More

This home is a great "time capsule" of an elegant manor in Stockholm. I would not put this on the must see list - but we were in Stockholm for a second visit and wanted to do something different and this fit the bill perfectly. Also recommend for children as unlike a traditional museum, one can really get the flavor... More

This exquisite house museum is a treasure trove of art and collectibles, in an opulent home preserved as it was in 1920 when the von Hallwyl family donated the house and contents to the nation. Unassuming from the street, the moment you step inside you are surrounded by the most beautiful objects. We took the English guided tour, which I... More

During our visit to Stockholm - getting lost as part of the adventure - we stumbled upon the Hallwyl Museum. At first, we stepped into the courtyard and had a pleasant drink. Then we ventured into the museum which proved to be rich in history and art. I'm glad we stopped to take more of a look.
