Had it not been for our concierge, we would have never known about this museum. Most of the rooms allow you to step back into the lives of this 19th Century upper-class couple to see their art collection and city home. The audio guide is easy to operate but isn't essential, as there are cards in English in each room.

Having visited Stockholm previously Hallwylska Museet was a great place to visit on a rainy day prior to the parliament tour. If you have already visited the Vasa, this would be my next destination on rainy day. The estate is very central in the city near both the city center and Gamla Stan. Upon entering, we were greeted kindly by... More

One of the best museums in Stockholm. I strongly recommend it, this museum was actually the home of a noble family.

It's one of the museums owned and operated by the Swedish government and is free of admission. I happened to walk by it recently and went in for 30 minutes. It's a home that was built at the end of 19th century and well preserved to show what life was like at that time. Most of the signs and placards... More

Very special 1900's home of a very affluent family. Perfectly maintained, you get a true view of family life. Does not take long to tour and was free!

I went on the free tour, which allowed access to the first floor and half of the second floors. It was an interesting visit, and I found myself wanting to know more about the people who lived there, and especially the people who served there. The servants' quarters were not open to public, sadly. I took the audio guide for... More

I don't know that you need to seek this one out. I did, and I'm glad I did, but I tucked it in on the end of day en route back to the hotel. I think that if I had made a trip across town or rearranged a museum schedule to accommodate seeing the museum, I might have felt a... More

Very well maintained. We did not pay for a tour and therefore only had access to the first floor for free. For us it was enough. We enjoyed the museum, it gives a really lovely feeling and everything is immaculate. Good example of baroque style, excellent armoury and porcelain room with amazing pieces. Furniture pieces were amazing too. Recommended if... More
