Housed in what was once a home to Count and Countess von Hallwyl, Hallwyl Museum (Hallwylska Museet) gives a glimpse into the life of Swedish royalty, particularly during the Victorian period. The estate was given to the Swedish government in 1920 on the grounds that it would remain unaltered. Today you can walk the halls of this preserved historical home, which exhibits about 50,000 objects and artifacts collected by its former tenants. The Countess acquired many pieces of art during her travels with the intention of eventually founding a museum. Along with the Skokloster Castle and the Royal Armory, this national museum is part of a government agency grouping that educates visitors on the history of Sweden.

This place is amazing! It is situated in central Stockholm and has really good staff walking about in the museum. Very interesting perspective in the wealthy lived in Stockholm at that time. If you are interested in antique furniture and baroque styles, come visit this place. Well worth your time. Oh, don't miss the informational document that you will find by the entrance of each room. I missed the it in the beginning and thought the information was not available, but it is and it sheds light to each particular room. We did the self tour. Free!
Free access to permanent exhibition. Interiors of supreme taste, large private collections ceramic pottery, silverware, decorative weapons etc.
