Millesgarden, Lidingo

4.4
#4 of 62 in Parks in Stockholm County
Located in the studio and home of sculptor Carl Milles, Millesgarden brings art and nature together. This art museum and sculpture garden provides an oasis for art lovers. Carl Milles and his wife (and fellow artist) Olga Milles acquired the property in 1906 and used it to showcase not just their own works but art from around the world. Tour their house and studio and view the couple's antiques. See international art exhibited alongside Milles' works, including his sculpture "God's Hand," which is on permanent display.

  • Interesting sculptures. Think summer is here much better, because even on the janvarski the rain is worth seeing!

  • Millesgården is possibly my favorite place in Stockholm. It's a quiet, scenic and beautiful garden full of marvelous statues that's is worth a visit in any season. There are changing exhibitions inside and a great vibe to the whole place. I don't think I have ever been to Stockholm without paying a visit to the gardens.
  • This place is magical. Go ther if you are visiting Stockholm. Beautiful.
  • The sculpture park is amazing and a must see. Temporary exhibitions, such as the present one of female modern artists, are further good reasons for a visit.
  • Very beutiful place to visit if you are into art, statues and history. Great view from the garden over the water. You could just wander around and finding some cool things. A bit expensive and hard to get around everywhere if you are in a wheelchair.
  • Peaceful oasis with lots of items of interest. We cycled out to Millesgarden from the city centre. There's a good cycle path all the way there. The current exhibition was really interesting plus the permanent museum pieces, all had good information boards in Swedish and English. The cafe is excellent too.
