Thielska Galleriet <3

We entered the museum to music, there was an opera concert on the top floor with these wonderful paintings on the walls, such a beautiful experience! I love when there’s music, and on top of that -live- music in galleries. There are so many amazing treasures there, we saw many Munch paintings, a Gauguin sketch, a ballet scene by Toulouse Lautrec, a few Carl Larssons and some amazing Eugene Jansson paintings and I could go on and on and on. Many great artists I was seeing for the first time.

Thielska Galleriet is a house from early 1900s purposely built to house the wonderful art collection of the art collector and banker Ernest Thiel and his family. Thiel lost almost all his money in the stock crash after world war II and so 1924 the house plus paintings/decor was bought by the state and shortly after opened as a museum.
