The Hallwyl Museum, Stockholm
Categories: History Museums, Museums
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.

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.
An upper class life frozen in time. Great art, furnishings, and lifestyle of an aristocrat seemingly left in place as it was on afternoon in the 30's. One of the better museums in Stockholm and definitely worth a visit.
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!
Fantastiskt hus med underbara samlingar. Stora samlingar konst, vapen och porslin mm. Missa inte vinden med bowlingbana
Small but interesting museum, especially now that it's free entry.
