  • The Hallwyl Museum is a House-Museum with collections of Art and Decorative Art from earlier periods. Together with the Royal Armoury, Skokloster Castle, the Historical Museum, the Royal Coin Cabinet and Tumba paper mill the Museum constitutes a national authority, headed by a Director General, and accountable to the Ministry of Culture.The six museums base their work on a national cultural policy resolution enacted by Swedish Parliament. The palatial looking town-house was designed by the architect Isak Gustaf Clason and built between 1893-1898 for Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl. It is considered one of the most lavish private residences in Sweden from that time. In contrast to the architecture with its references to past styles, all manner of modern technology were introduced at the outset, such as central heating, electric lighting and elevators. In 1920 Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl donated their home with its contents to the Swedish State. The terms of the bequest stipulated that the house must remain essentially unchanged and in 1938 it opened as a museum.
