It seems every city has a museum that was once the property of someone very wealthy, who left it to the state. This is Stockholm's version. Visit if you're interested in interior design, china and decorative items, or (like me) a better understanding of how wealthy people lived in that time period. Fair warning, though: the owner's tastes lean very... More

I visited this fascinating building and museum some years ago and since they're now running a feature on children we decided that Easter Thursday was a good time for a repeat visit. This isn't for those with difficulties in walking - lots of stairs, no lifts. It opens at noon. Free entry. Collect a coloured sticker, from the museum shop,... More

I love house museums and was really looking forward to this one; unfortunately I timed my visit wrong and was unable to attend one of the guided tour sessions. It makes a difference, as the staff explained that the guided tour provides greater access to all 5 stories of the house, whereas with the self-guided audioguides we'd have access only... More

We visited this museum on a recommendation from our guide, on a free walking tour of the city. We actually needed to fill in some time, as it was free why not. We are so glad we did, the interiors are truly beautiful. My husbands favourite was the games room. The porcelain collection was very impressive. All and all so... More

Come early. There will be a queue. You should take a guided tour because you will see and hear SO much more.

Well laid out historic property with a 'National Trust feel' of a bygone age - allow 2-3hrs for your visit, and extra if you want to take a tour, which takes you into restricted areas.

This small museum offered many articles for your viewing pleasure...antique furniture....walls covered with ornate tapestry..and a small armory collection... It was free. Plan on about 45 minutes. Please do not expect any fine paintings etc.

Built in the late 1800's, the palatial Hallwyl House was the winter home for the immensely rich Count and Countess Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl. The collections include amazing period furniture and art. Admission is free.

I had read about this place then we accidentally stumbled on it so decided to go in - and it's free so why not!

Hallwylska museum is great if you fancy a quick injection of culture. It's a palace on the centre of Stockholm with fancy decor and furniture. You've seen it in half an hour. And what's best: it's free. On the second floor there is an exhibition that you have to pay for.
