This was free! And the art, culture and collection was pretty amazing. I do wish you could visit the living quarters although this was great for a free tour. Recommend checking this out for a few minutes when you need a shopping break :)

A nice sample, how the rich people lived in centre of Stockholm in 19th century. As it is free, it is also good in winter time just to hop in and get some warm.

This is a museum of a wealthy family in the late 1800s in Stockholm. It is very interesting to visit.

Great to be able to see inside a wealthy Swedish town house. It was large in scale over 3-4 floors, and some very lavish rooms with ornate gold gilding and interesting interiors

Yes at least I did. They are not that great and the family bought some fakes. The attic is full.
