Located within the walled grounds of Blockhusudden on Djurgården, Thielska Galleriet is a fine art museum with late 19th- to 20th-century works by Eugène Jansson, Carl Larsson, Bruno Liljefors, Edvard Munch, August Strindberg, Anders Zorn, and other leading artists of that era.
Characterized by spacious rooms with glass roofs, the museum walls are covered with paintings, and collections include Nietzsche’s death mask and prints by Edvard Munch.
It also houses painter Richard Bergh’s extensive archive—letters, notes, drawings, drafts, and photographs.
Although Djurgården is an easy stroll from the city center, it feels a world away from downtown Stockholm, particularly if you head towards the island’s eastern edge. This pleasant walk though rolling parkland will take you to Thielska Galleriet, the former home of wealthy banker Ernest Thiel. The villa now houses an extraordinary collection of art. Among the painters represented is Edvard Munch, with a version of The Scream as well as other works.
