Beautiful house/palace with so many things to see. The only thing the English tour needs a better English speaking guide.

The Hallwylska museum is a fantastic journey in time. See how a wealthy woman and her family lived their life in Stockholm late 19th centery and early 20th. She had the Money, he the title.

Nice museum, nice art and good set up. It is interesting to visit a house as it would have been at its original time. I really recommend it.

Beautiful museum in the middle of the city. There is no admission fee so it is free inleds you want a guided tour. Hidden gem. During Summer the open roof bar is also. Trendy and beautiful atmosphere.

The builders's brief for this mansion was to spare no expense. Ridiculously wealthy couple, Count and Countess Hallwyl then filled this fascinating place with beautiful paintings, furniture, crockery, and collectables. A snap shot into their lives in the late 19th century. The museum is free...More

A couple who spend parts of their lifes collecting things. Ended up being a museum, that is probably never found elsewhere. Sometimes also get alive with actors (playing the old upperclass manservants) that you can meet going around the place.
