  • Lovely garden, beautiful sculptures, wonderful walk on a sunny day, but wouldn’t recommend the museum other than for the space and the cafe

  • Apart from visiting the Vasa museum this little gem has been our highlight in our 4 days stay at Stockholm. Due to the very high temperatures at Midsommar we escaped the city center to stroll along the park. The entrance to the villa is about 12 Euro but totally worth it. The ticket office is in a smaller housing next to the villa. The tour starts on the left with a gallery of lovely paintings of Swedish art from around the 1900s in the romantic style. The tour continues in the villa right after a tunnel passage. The rooms are just beautiful showing you an extraordinary life style from around 1900 including Vienna modern and art nouveau. The different colors of light from the window blinds and room interior is amazing. Also have a look at the flowers in each room. They are all real and freshly taken from the nursery garden around the corner (can not be visited). Plan for about 1 to 2 hours for this place. I highly recommend taking the bus to the very right eastern end of the island to board one of the SL ferries (line 82, if you got a SL day ticket). It will bring you back downtown (or Vasa museum) with a few stops on the other side of the bay giving you the opportunity the get get some nice photos.
  • Beautifully situated art museum, not overwhelmingly big. Cafeteria sells nice fresh food. The Nickolai Astrup exhibition is very good now.
