Another favourite in Stockholm, is Millesgarden at Lidingö. It is situated with a view over the water and used to be the home of Carl Milles and his wife. I wish I could go back in time and walk around here in a beautiful dress, and enjoy how it was here in the old days.
The artist home was built in 1908 by sculptor Carl Milles and his wife painter Olga Milles. In 1936 Millesgården was given by Carl and Olga to the Swedish commuity! And thanks to them, I’m going here regularly to look at one of many exhibitions.
Millesgården is today a well-renowned museum with an artist home, an antique collection, a vast sculpture garden, an art gallery with a museum shop and a restaurant.
You can sign up for a guided tour, and I can really recommend that as the guides are really knowledgable.
