This museum is free and worth a visit. You'll tour some of the rooms where a wealthy family had lived, and see their furniture, etc. The inside of the home is lovely, and eccentric (putting it mildly). Makes you wonder what kind of home you would build if you had unlimited funds! Check their website for archived photos of the... More

This beautiful home is well preserved and gives your a taste of what life was at that time. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to share their passion for history.

The Hallwyl Museum - essentially a sumptuously decorated house in the city centre - provides an insight into the life of an aristocratic family at the turn of the 20th century. On the top floor, for some inexplicable reason, there is an incongruous display about theatre, harlequins etc. Overall, great for a rainy day. When you enter, you can either... More

This museum has free entry and as the weather was terrible we gave it a go. The house is really interesting but on the small side and you do not get to see many of the past owners collections. The exhibition on the top floor about theatre characters we found a little boring.

The palace answers to those interested to have a glimpse in the home of an aristocratic family at the turn of last century. The level with the bedrooms was hasting a mask/clown exposition, disturbing and contrasting to the whole of the palace. Take the guided tour, as it permits access to many interesting rooms, to the kitchen and garage.

1) This is an actual winter home of Count and Countess Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, amazingly rich people, the house was completed in 1898. You can take either a guided or self-guided tour (recommended). 2) The guided tours are in Swedish, there are some in English but only at certain times (like Saturdays at 1:30pm), so call ahead. 3)...

This house was a wonderful surprise. Every detail of this home is exquisite--no expense was spared. You can take a guided tour or there are very descriptive cards in each area that will give you all of the necessary information on the highlights of that room. I found the finishes used in this home to overshadow those in Drottingham Palace... More

This is free and is worth the visit, it is small but the rooms are filled with interesting and unique items. Hard to imagine folks lived there. It is worth the visit.
