The Hallwyl Museum, Stockholm

(4.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Housed in what was once a home to Count and Countess von Hallwyl, The Hallwyl Museum gives a glimpse into the life of Swedish royalty, particularly during the Victorian period. The estate was given to the Swedish government in 1920 on the grounds that it would remain unaltered. Today you can walk the halls of this preserved historical home, which exhibits about 50,000 objects and artifacts collected by its former tenants. The Countess acquired many pieces of art during her travels with the intention of eventually founding a museum. Along with the Skokloster Castle and the Royal Armory, this national museum is part of a government agency grouping that educates visitors on the history of Sweden. By using our Stockholm vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to The Hallwyl Museum and other attractions in Stockholm.

  • Very little and cozy. Worth to wait in the queue as it is not taking too long as people are leaving quite quickly. Impressive rooms :)
  • Its kinda hidden museum which bridges you an opportunity to experience the glory of guns shields swords and lifestyle of the Queens Era. Worth a try but do afford a guide.
  • It's really nice and well preserved! Mrs Hallwylska has done amazing work in preparing the house and keep track of the history -- an extraordinary woman. The guided tour is recommended to know about the house.
  • Stunning house with a bit of a Golden Age/Downton Abbey feel. Perfect for a spot of daydreaming about being posh upper-class back in the day... Since admission is free there can be queues as they can only accept so many people at a time, but well worth the wait.
  • Amazing outdoor restaurant in the palace piazza! Great food, drinks and service! One of the best kept secrets in Stockholm during the summer and well worth a visit!
