Liljevalchs konsthall (Swedish for "Liljevalch's Art Gallery") is an art gallery located on the Djurgården island in Stockholm, Sweden. Designed by architect Carl Bergsten (1879–1935) and inaugurated in March 1916, it is today owned by the City of Stockholm.

Behind the entrance on the north-western corner is a small vestibule. To the right of the latter is a large sculpture hall leading to two large galleries with skylights intended for paintings, flanked by series of smaller exhibition spaces. The eastern end of the building has a large-scale portico facing a small park surrounded by the large windows of a small restaurant.

One of the most appreciated exhibition spaces in Sweden, Liljevalch is renowned for its well-proportioned spaces in a range of sizes and its restaurant Blå porten ("Blue Gate"). The concrete pillars and beams forming the structural framework of the building are left exposed as pilasters and mouldings in the façade with brick walls and a horizontal row of windows filling the spaces between them. In front of and above the main entrance is a sculpture and a relief by Carl Milles.

  • An excellent art gallery. It depends on the exhibition being shown at the time as to how enjoyable your visit will be be. Entry was free, has toliets and lockers. A shop and cafe are also open there. The building is quite small so you should be able to see the exhibitions in around 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Small contemporary art museum on Djurgarden, with free admission. Had an exhibit on the B&W photography of Anders Pedersen on while we visited - great stuff. The tour was unfortunately only available in Swedish, at that time. Hop in, and check whether anything is on that can captivate you...
  • A really beautiful museum with some breathtaking art from people from all walks of life. One of the least pretentious art museums I have been too. Excellent shop and cafe, located near lots of other museums so you could museum-hop if you want. Free entry on a Monday, but it's popular with elderly locals so it will be busy!
  • Was currently on Anders Petersen photography exhibition. I totally recommend!
  • I really like the concept of the "Spring salon" with artists from across the country getting the chance to exhibit. But it's not super easy to get to the gallery and once you do the line is long and the cafe doesn't have great food, and I also feel this institution could do more to attract a more diverse crowd. I'm not really in position to assess the curation.
