It is actually really interesting and you could spend a long time browsing if you wanted - we didn't spend loads of time in there but definitely long enough to appreciate the artwork and the beautiful...

Hallwylska museum is great if you fancy a quick injection of culture. It's a palace on the centre of Stockholm with fancy decor and furniture. You've seen it in half an hour. And what's best: it's free. On the second floor there is an exhibition that you have to pay for.

This museum is one of the free entrance museum in stockholm. If you have time you can stop by when you are out there walking or you can combine with the opera building. İts 4floor building and you can see the bedroom part only if you are with a guide

This was a compact museum that still had a lot to see. It was also equally nice for the hubby as well as me, as there were guns and swords as well as paintings and decorations to see, ha. You might get more out of the visit if you pay for the guided tour. We went straight in (its free... More

Having stated the bad about this museum, and the woman behind the ticket counter was rude, maybe a little anti-Americanism there... who knows, but it was noticed by the 'greeter' who approached her and spoke to her after our encounter. Now the museum... interesting story, well put together, and great artwork and furnishings from the period. There are only 8... More

A nice little museum that is actually a family mansion, which is actually quite impressive. My recommendation would be to buy an audio guide if you can spare the money (the museum itself is free), or get a guided tour, because it is not that big and you can go through the whole place pretty quickly and there isn't much...

This is a fantastic museum in the middle of Stockholm that is an absolutely timemachine back to the late 18th and early 19th century and with pieces from armoury to porcelain in an exquisite environment full of details. Go visit.

It resembles a small palace in the city. Has a lot of rooms and great design! Free admission with information notes in each room but you can always opt for guided tours or audio tours for a fee. Make sure to check in with register to get your sticker

This place was built with a generous wallet, but also by people who cared about details and it became a lovely place just in the center of town. If you are the kind that want to make a quick visit, then go. Its truly worth it. Roaming around in the different rooms taking in a way of life from past... More
