A gem of a place!

An absolute delight to visit, with a lovely cafe too! Easy building to move through and some nice things to buy in the small shop, which is at the entrance.

Gallery was great if you like art. The cafe has home made cakes and wonderful teas (and coffee). If you are going by the 69 bus however, make sure you get the right bus. Apparently there are 2 and the one we were on did not go all the way (?) We needed to walk a very long way (actually... More

What a wonderful place. Originally a private home to a rich banker in the late 1800's. Edvard Thiel supported struggling artists. His private collection is wonderful, housed in beautiful surroundings. Many of the artists are now well known. I have visited this gallery on several occasions and it is always a delight.

It's an easy 25-minute bus ride from central Stockholm to this intimate and gracious collection, housed in a hilltop mansion where the grounds invite relaxing on a warm day. The big international name here is Edvard Munch, who's well represented, but don't be surprised to discover arresting artists less well known outside Scandinavia. Case in point: Eugene Jansson, who specialized... More

After visiting Prins Eugene's Waldenmarsudde, follow the path along the water until you reach the Thiel Gallery. You'll enjoy the beautiful walk along the water, and be rewarded by elevated art and pottery in beautiful a beautiful space.

Formerly the residence of Ernest Thiel and the family, now a gallery showing their collection of paintings. Many by Munch, but also many others Swedish painters. Beautiful rooms of furniture, painted walls and ceilings; overall a grand house. There is a lovely small cafe serving lunch and snacks as well as beer and wine. Highly recommended.

A pleasant ride out on the bus, and a short walk up the hill. This real home turned gallery. Gives a very good selection of turn of the century Swedish impressionism. No elevator, steps. Good cafe, great to get coffee to keep going.

If you like paintings...and like to add to you photograph collection of paintings....definitely go here...it was worth the 10 bucks. It is the end of my week long trip...here... More

Wonderful art museum on Djurgården island. Great permanent collection and interesting temporary exhibits. The house itself is quite quirky and worth visiting on its own. Great little café, though crowded, and beautiful surroundings.

Neighbourhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
