Thielska Galleriet, Stockholm

4.4
#16 of 49 in Museums in Stockholm
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.

    The visit of the Thiel Museum was a wonderful experience and one of the highlights of our Stockholm travel. Located in the eastern tip of the Green Island of Djurgården, but bus line 69 as of the station accessible, lies this beautiful house with its interesting exhibition. Below are mainly in the former premises of the Museum namesake pictures of Scandinavian artists, among them Carl Larsson and Edvard Munch. But there are also works by Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin and Daumier to discover here. All beautifully presented in bright rooms. Here is one not killed like in the major museums of the abundance of impressions, but can enjoy the manageable amount of works in all Muse. Although the usually more "gloomy" Munch is not necessarily our 'thing', but is the number of here exhibited works of this famous artist also designs of the famous "scream" already impressive. People who like Carl Larsson as we, here also will come at his own expense. A room of the House is equipped exclusively with works by him. But we have discovered here also Swedish painter that we previously didn't know us very well liked. We can recommend any art lover who visited Stockholm, this charming, small museum. A note yet: If one is not the "Stockholm card" has and instead as we take the bus tickets at the kiosk, you should know that no return tickets can be obtained at the Museum and its direct surroundings. You can buy return tickets not already on the outward journey and also not re-raise the return tickets in the bus. But who is on foot, turn back a lovely stroll from the Museum in the lively western part of the island, always on the water along. It takes about half an hour, but we've enjoyed it despite rainy weather as well as the Museum.

    A museum that I probably would have never visited myself, but this time I went with ... turned out to be pretty interesting anyway. Much art on the walls of more or less well-known artists. Also interesting to read about different fashion designers in the temporary exhibition which ran during our visit. 11-årigen was not immediately thrilled in this museum/gallery. Looked into the well-stocked Cafe but ate nothing this time. A little puzzled over how to allow shrimp sandwiches stand out in the open in a fairly hot local?

  • Set in a very pleasant location, this early 20th century stately home gives a breathtaking view on the high culture of Stockholm before WWI, and has art for anybody to enjoy.
  • 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 !
