Completed at the end of the 19th century it had all the modern conveniences of the time such as electricity and central heating. It housed, and continues to do so, the vast art collection and artefacts amassed... More

This is Swedens answer to Downtown Abbey but located just in the central parts of Stockholm between Kungsträdgården and the Dramatical Theatre. Well worth a visit !

I have to confess, I haven't been inside the museum but come here often for the bar! A great outdoor area with seating and chilled out music, and a lovely bar. I have been several times and will definitely return!

We happened to visit this museum just because we found out it has a free entry. Did not expect to find such a great place to see! It is a small place, but full of art!

It's a small place, next to the dramatic theatre. However just after you enter you feel like you just moved back in time about 100 years. The house is fantastic. Furniture, paintings, all the items, much better to visit than palaces with the apartments. A must see in Stockholm, won't take long to visit, 30 minutes- 1 hours is perfectly... More

Wilhelmina von Hallwyl came from a very rich family and her main interest in life was collecting things. Many valuable items were purchased at auctions. She was able to outbid established museums such as the Nordic Museum and even the Swedish King. Early on she decided that her collections should become a museum. She had all her possessions photographed and... More

A perfect small personal historical household museum. Countess von Hallwyl was a great collector and a great personality, and her - entire - house (including everything in the household) is intact and most on display. Do not miss the fantastic bathroom and bedroom, or the countesses gymnastics room in the attic. Good to go on the guided tours!

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.
