Waldemarsudde - Review
Swedish Prince Eugen fell in love with this particular bit of land full of centuries-old oak trees and had architect Ferdinand Boberg build him a house here. He was a painter and after his death the house was converted into an art museum for his works as well as some other painters. The Art Nouveau interior is fetchingly and lavishly appointed, making the best use of natural light. As for the fine art, itself, it took the prince over 60 years to collect all this excellent Nordic art, with a lot of focus on the early late 19th and 20th century painters. The Prince himself has roughly 3200 paintings of his own here.
It’s a beautiful complex comprised of the parklands, flower and sculpture gardens, a 17th century linseed oil mill (Waldemarsuddes oljekvarn), the Prince’s botanical nursery (Tradgardsmasteriet Prins Eugens Valdemarsudde), the stables, the garage, an old boathouse and an old manor in addition to the museum building.

Waldemarsudde, Stockholm Reviews
A great museum with not only beautiful art, but a beautiful ambiance within an old mansion surrounded by beautiful grounds. The house itself is fascinating with great information on the owner and his collections, followed by a great collection of Nordic art spanning lots of artists and genres. It's a great place to spend 1-2 hours if in the area and offers a unique and different experience from the major museums on the island.
Love Swedish art. Some exhibitions are better than others. Nordic painting was a bit disappointing. I was expecting to see some Norwegian art too. But the place is fab
Definitely worth a visit especially if you are an art lover. It's has a lovely and relaxing atmosphere. The staff are friendly and very helpful. No problems getting here as public transport both bus and tram make it easily accessible to the visitor. The grounds surrounding the museum are beautiful and we'll worth visiting with a mixture of art and horticulture ☺
Beautiful home with a nice art collection and some nice view on the surrounding areas. The park and exterior are also perfect for a romantic afternoon promenade.
A delightful house/museum with lots of paintings and a nice café nearby. A bit difficult to get to, unless you time the tour boat well or be prepared to walk a bit. Well worth a visit though.
