Yes they were rich. Yes they have amazing palace in the centre of the city... hmm. All this just was a bit too much to me. For some reason I did not enjoy seeing all the great riches of someone so ridiculously more fortunate than the rest.

This is an amazing museum, and with free admission, don't miss it! The house is so intricate and beautiful. I have never done the tour, but would like to at some point. Don't miss the information cards in each room to learn about the different furnishings and purpose of the room.

This is worth a visit - the first floor is free to visit after going to the ticket booth but there is also a guided tour for which you pay. We did not do this as it was only in Swedish at the time we were there. Even without the guide, there is plenty of information in the rooms to... More

It seems every city has a museum that was once the property of someone very wealthy, who left it to the state. This is Stockholm's version. Visit if you're interested in interior design, china and decorative items, or (like me) a better understanding of how wealthy people lived in that time period. Fair warning, though: the owner's tastes lean very... More

I visited this fascinating building and museum some years ago and since they're now running a feature on children we decided that Easter Thursday was a good time for a repeat visit. This isn't for those with difficulties in walking - lots of stairs, no lifts. It opens at noon. Free entry. Collect a coloured sticker, from the museum shop,... More

I love house museums and was really looking forward to this one; unfortunately I timed my visit wrong and was unable to attend one of the guided tour sessions. It makes a difference, as the staff explained that the guided tour provides greater access to all 5 stories of the house, whereas with the self-guided audioguides we'd have access only... More

We visited this museum on a recommendation from our guide, on a free walking tour of the city. We actually needed to fill in some time, as it was free why not. We are so glad we did, the interiors are truly beautiful. My husbands favourite was the games room. The porcelain collection was very impressive. All and all so... More

Come early. There will be a queue. You should take a guided tour because you will see and hear SO much more.
