“Art and Artful Food”

Thiel Gallery (Thielska Galleriet)
Ranked #15 of 320 things to do in Stockholm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Made our way here on a very snowy day. It shouldn't have been hard to find the entrance from the bus stop but - - - The museum is in a residential area that is charming. Free with the Stockholm card.

Went to see Carl Larsson artworks that are obscure. First of all, the house itself is charming. Some of the art is outstanding; some mediocre; all new to me. It was a treat.

Because of the snow, we decided to have lunch in the cafe'. What a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious and nicely presented. The small table gave us a view of the snow out the window. Absolutely lovely.

We were the only people in the museum and had a marvelous time. Even the guard was friendly and chatted with us. It's a bit out of the way but if you like the unusual and unexpected, take the bus out to the museum.

It is a fascinating house (in most museums I appreciate the architecture as much as the collections) in beautiful surroundings, and very very peaceful - I went just before closing time (1 hr is enough to visit it...) and was almost alone =) I loved having the rooms all to myself, it is much better to enjoy the collections!

Beautiful house and setting although we walked there and it took an hour! Managed to get a bus back but remember to buy your tickets in advance - you can't buy them on the bus. Loved the Munsch room.

Oh, to have had the wealth and ability to amass a collection like this, enage an architect to design your house / gallery for it, find this wonderful location (but maybe not have the divorce and bankruptcy experience of Thiel himslef). The Munch room is stunner. Also don't miss those small rooms at the top for prints, etchings and Neitzche's death mask! Some of the paintings are a bit scandanavian chocolate box, but it's the setting and assemblage as a whole that will thrill you and make you so glad you made the effort - 69 bus stops right outside [but not the 69K which is every 2nd bus and stops at the concrete radio tower].

This is a nice house that contains some nice works of art. The museum is rather smallish, we saw everything in well under two hours. The works of art... nice, but I've seen better on multiple occasions. There are a few pieces that stand out, but that's it.
