Do you find museums too big and difficult, because there is too much to take in? Try Hallwyl Museum! The beautiful house does have many details, each room has its own style, but it is small enough and so very interesting to see. You might...More

Truly enjoyed walking through the house, it was preserved very well. If you do not opt for paying for a tour guide several parts of the home you are unable to access.

If you like London's Wallace Collection you'll like this (free) museum - with a very nice courtyard cafe, I really wanted to do the English tour so that we could have seen the kitchens etc. But whiled away a pleasant hour.
