This intimate house was built for banker and collector Ernest Thiel, who, after losing his fortune, donated his collection to the state in 1924. In doing so, he gifted the state one of the world’s finest collection of Nordic art dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Some of the prominent artists who find a space here are E Jansson, Carl Larsson, Bruno Liljefors and Anders Zorn and Edvard Munch. The rooms in the floor above are the nicest, for they show off the collection in natural light coming in through glass ceilings. Check out the Munch room and the death masks of Nietzsche.

An interesting collection of Swedish art, including several of the better known works by Bruno Liljefors. But how much better it would have been if Thiel's home had been presented furnished instead of as a sterile gallery. I can only suppose that most of the original furniture was sold off when the state took over the house and art. Pity.
Late 1800s to 1900s art. Some very impressive ones and other rather unimpressive. There was a substantial amount of Edvard Munch material. Also look look out for some Zorn paintings. The Strindberg ones are just there since he is famous for his writing.
The place used to be home of Ernest Thiel, who has accumulated a very unique and one of the best art collection in Sweden. The building itself is already a piece of art. The thing I liked most is how Thiel chose the lighting and colors of each rooms and make sure it is in harmony with the works in the room. For visitors to Stockholm, you could also try to take the ferry instead of bus to go to the gallery (use the same SL card). It is definitely a unique experience to enjoy the beauty of Stockholm over water.
Thielska and Waldemarsudde are two most beautiful museums. Best collection of Swedish artists of last two centuries. Beautiful mansion built originally to hold collection. Nice restaurant. Views from top of mansion are great.
Wanderful weekend experience geting out of central Stockholm. Art Nouveau and Art Deco villa and private collection consistent of prominent Swedish artists of the period. Along E.Munch, some French impressionist, A.Rodin etc.
