Like the Wallace Collection in London, the collection and collector is often more interesting than many of the items but it's a fascinating insight into an interesting and strong-willed woman and her collection if interesting-not-great items.

This is a private house - or palace - the first to have electricity and telephones in Stockholm. The countess was a great collector and her collections are on display as she left them.

Hallwyl Museum is a very pleasant and easy visit in fashionable Östermalm. The mansion fronts Berzellii Park (named for the famous Swedish chemist) in Central Stockholm. The museum is surrounded by excellent restaurants and boutiques and includes its own inner courtyard restaurant (open during Summer). You enter the mansion through a stately Venetian façade on Hamngatan (Port Street). Admission is... More

The Hallwylska palace (museum) does not make any great impression from the outside, compared with all other splendid buildings in the city of Stockholm, but once you enter the gate you'll understand that this is something special. A complete ultra luxury home from the early 1900 showing exactly how it was and looked at that time as nothing have been... More

It is awesome to think that the owners of this house decorated and preserved it as a living museum even when they were alive. The rooms of stunning and contain so many wonderful artifacts. Make sure to get there earlier in the day to reserve your spot on the English tour!

I love this museum. The owner, a rich nobleman really lived a beautiful life. The museum is now free (it used to be quite expensive) and you get to see the bedrooms upstairs, which used to be closed. It's well worth a visit. It doesn't take more than 30-45 minutes. The cafe looked beautiful, but I didn't stop to try... More
