Thielska Galleriet, Stockholm

(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Admire the impressive collection of Scandinavian art housed in a historic mansion at Thielska Galleriet. The gallery displays the collection of Ernest Thiel, a wealthy banker and a renowned art enthusiast, and is located inside his former home. The mansion itself is a sight to see, the work of famous architect Ferdinand Boberg, completed in 1907. Inside, next to period furnishings, you can see works of celebrated artists such as Bruno Liljefors, Anders Zorn, and Edvard Munch. In addition to Scandinavian masters, many of whom were Thiel's personal friends, the gallery also displays works of Paul Gauguin and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, while its garden is adorned by Auguste Rodin's sculptures. The mansion is not wheelchair-accessible and features a few staircases which might be difficult to navigate for visitors with reduced mobility.

  • I'm considering giving the Thiel gallery a Deuce in the judgement but the art pulls up to a third! Yesterday, Saturday, where I and a friend there to listen Stockholm consort who sang beautiful. Before, we wanted to have coffee but I can say that it's been a long time since I was so disappointed at a cafe visit. Poor logistics, omysig environment, sloppy Shrimp sandwich and rude staff. Just the fact that we are in a tight time in the queue with all the pastries and sandwiches at a long table along with people lay their sleeves of goodies when they with hands digging for what they want. It was actually really distasteful. The nasty attitude from the staff (the main character included) did not experience any better. Lukewarm coffee and dry bread to the small räkmackan drove my mood over the edge to the point where I now sit here, the day after, and writes a bad review. Not worth the money. The art and the music made the visit worthwhile, however. Sorry!

  • We rode the bus out to this attraction out on Djurgården. The House is scenic and quiet at blockhusudden. Magnificent art collection to look at, and then we ended the visit with a visit to Monika Ahlberg's café. We had coffee and ate delicious shrimp sandwiches. We were a bit disappointed when the owner herself served off the table before everyone had eaten and also dried with x 20 when we access clear.

  • Amazing. Best museum I saw in Stockholm. Out of the way but well worth the bus ride. Great , focused collection of Munch & Swedish contemporaries
  • A interesting dive in the Swedish painting. I really appreciated painters I didn't know. Walking back to town through the park is another pleasant experience. It worth a trip, caffe has nice cakes too !
  • Outstanding permanent art collection. Many pieces from Edvard Munch including a The Scream lithograph one.
  • Stinking awesome! Sexy art...
  • Impressive permanent collection, makes it well worth a visit any time of the year.
