Unless you participate on an extremely expensive guided tour, your admission only includes access to the first floor of this museum/home. While very grand and imposing, it has no warmth and the rooms are all very dark. You can see everything in 15-20 minutes. We were sorry to have paid to visit this museum.

We spend a few hours there in this small museum. Enjoyed it a lot, beautiful furniture, paintings, etc. a bit different from ordinary museums. This is a grand old house/villa in the city. Don't bring little kids, it won't fascinate the!

This museum was free with the Stockholm Card and is a little gem. It differs from the other museums and galleries. The house was designed to become a museum from the beginning and the family who lived here have left their mark.
