Bizarre, interesting, indulgent, haunting, extravagant, relic of a bygone age, charming, gloomily atmospheric, curiously free to enter, nice people looking after the place ... definitely worth a visit ... and that’s all I have to say about that.

The Hallwyl home-museum is utterly interesting and above all - it is free. When building the palace nothing was too expensive, only the best was good enough. One of the first buildings with electricity, watercloset, clever heating system. Hallwyl-museum shows how the aristocracy lived in...More

We learnt nothing about the history of the collections beyond the obvious, just a bunch of quirky objects in a lovley house and movie memorabilia, a weird experience, we walked out with loads of questions.

A spectacular oasis of late 19th century bling on a busy shopping street in the city centre. The Hallwyll family really knew how to show off their wealth, with thousands of items of Sevres porcelain, ornate armour and a floor featuring 40 different hardwoods. Helpful...More

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.

The Town house of Hallwyl is located Downtown Stockholm. Just Went with my American/Austrian friends, truly a great experience! Try to Catch the guided tour!!! The museum is quite small and it was a line so I would advice to be there early!
