The location is nice, also good for a warm day stroll westbound from Thiel Museum following the south shore of the Djurgården island. The building is an example how the upper echelon lived. The museum and art collection is fine for an Edvard Munch fans, otherwise I am sure there are way better collections elsewhere.

A little out of the way but easily accessible by bus from the Old Town, enchanting and opulent, this palace features many works of art and in particular a lovely rotunda on the second floor with outstanding paintings of imagined animals in bold colours.

This gallery, in a mansion just outside central Stockholm, has some stunning pieces of art. There are several paintings by Carl Larsson, who was a friend of the Thiel family and painted their portraits. There are also several works by Andreas Zorn, and by other important Swedish and French painters. There are some fine sculptures, and the grounds are lovely.... More

Fabulous turn-of-century (20th) collection in a beautiful setting. Lots of Munch if you are a fan. Nice (maybe a bit $$) cafe.

This is located at the far end of Djurgarden so while walking is possible but bus 69 has a stop just outside. Art work from different artists were on display so it is nice to visit this gallery.

I visited the Theil in early July of 2016 and found it to be charming and well curated. The galleries were well lit and the collection of modern Scandinavian artists was first rate.
