A nice sample, how the rich people lived in centre of Stockholm in 19th century. As it is free, it is also good in winter time just to hop in and get some warm.

This is a museum of a wealthy family in the late 1800s in Stockholm. It is very interesting to visit.

Great to be able to see inside a wealthy Swedish town house. It was large in scale over 3-4 floors, and some very lavish rooms with ornate gold gilding and interesting interiors

The Hallwyl Museum has free entrance and makes a very nice visit. We took English audioguide for 40 SEK and I would say it was worthwhile. The museum is like a gateway to another time. Everything is left as in early 20th century. The arts collection and the luxuries of the house are really extravagant and the lifestyle of it's... More

This museum is free and worth a visit. You'll tour some of the rooms where a wealthy family had lived, and see their furniture, etc. The inside of the home is lovely, and eccentric (putting it mildly). Makes you wonder what kind of home you would build if you had unlimited funds! Check their website for archived photos of the... More

The Hallwyl Museum - essentially a sumptuously decorated house in the city centre - provides an insight into the life of an aristocratic family at the turn of the 20th century. On the top floor, for some inexplicable reason, there is an incongruous display about theatre, harlequins etc. Overall, great for a rainy day. When you enter, you can either... More

This museum has free entry and as the weather was terrible we gave it a go. The house is really interesting but on the small side and you do not get to see many of the past owners collections. The exhibition on the top floor about theatre characters we found a little boring.

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.
