(650+ reviews on the web)
Garden
Located in the studio and home of sculptor Carl Milles, Millesgården 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. Put Millesgården into our Lidingo trip generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • In 20 minutes you get, of course that by combining metro+un bus + 10 minutes of walking. The House of the sculptor + is area of exhibition and garden with sculptures. It is on a cliff with that diafrutas overlooking the Bay. If you have the card of museums and better currently includes it you interesting painter exhibition that is the film the Danish girl if you decide to go best sunny day and enjoy the garden. Price 150 of the open from 11 to 17 h

  • modern small art gallery that has inspirational exhibitions. Ongoing exhibition of Gerda Wegener is both beautiful and fascinating. Clearly worth seeing. Outside the art gallery Millesstatyer with wonderful views.

  • Always a wonderful experience to visit Millesgarden. But be aware! Do not take your lunchbrake at the popular restaurant just Before the guided tour. You will find it just too crowded, which really is...  more »

  • Wonderful! Even if you don't care for art, the place itself is scenic enough to warrant a visit. Note: There is also a Carl Milles fountain/statue next to Konserthuset and a huge statue at Nacka Strand that was made following one of his designs.
  • I love visiting artist's homes for not only do they contain their art works but they also showcase the artist's taste in furniture and architecture. Milles' home was so serene influenced by Italian villas, containing peaceful fountains that look out onto the Stockholm archipelago.
  • Great environment with both fascinating art and view. The resturant is over priced and the accessibility poor.
  • Good place for a stroll, a bit too dull for me because it's just a ton of sculptures so you need the literature to understand whats what. When we were there they had a glass show (showing all types of things made of glass) so that was cool. Won't rush back...
  • An incredible museum. One of my favorite places to visit in Sweden.
