The Hallwyl Museum, Stockholm

4.4
#11 of 49 in Museums in Stockholm
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.

    Beautiful House of the end of the 19th centuries, with a nice collections porcelain European at that time, a pool, a room of modern bathroom (shower and bathtub) and lots of other parts that could be met at that time. Nevertheless, a little frustrated of not being able see era clothing collection and kitchens because, to make a visit guided that she, is paying off. Because Yes, the visit of the House is otherwise free and it worth the detour.

    A gem in the heart of Stockholm and free entry into most rooms! Much to see and do not forget to peek into the "basement" where the toilets are available! Cosy inner courtyard where you can snack/lunch!

  • An interesting house to visit but access to some rooms including art collection and China is by guided tour only.
  • I was there for the Hatt off! exhibition of designer Lars Nilsson. The exhibition was great and the discover of the palce was also amazing to me! Love it!
  • Really interesting and beautiful 19-century house and interior design, this museum is unique in Stockholm and shouldn't be missed. It is just a great historical presentation of what an upper class home could look like. If the service wasn't so snobby (in a bad way) I would definitely give this all the stars.
  • Parts are free, some require to purchase a ticket. Overall nice exposition with furniture, sculpures, paintings, interior, etc. Good to have a grasp about history.
  • Interesting museum to see an example of lavish spending in the early 19th century. Everything is literally custom made in the semi castle.
