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 :)

This museum is definitely worth a visit. It is free to the public which is even better. The home is beautiful and full of wonderful artifacts. You see one level of the home and there is information about each room when you enter the room. Very well presented.

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

The Hallwyl Museum has free entrance and makes a very nice visit. We took English audioguide for 40 SEK and I would say it was worthwhile. The museum is like a gateway to another time. Everything is left as in early 20th century. The arts collection and the luxuries of the house are really extravagant and the lifestyle of it's... More

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
