Useful information about the number of steps

The Hallwyl Museum covers five floors. As there are no lifts, visitors must climb the many stairs. To enter the museum, you need to walk up nine stone steps. There are seven steps from the entrance hall within the museum to the cloakroom.

A narrow staircase with sixteen steps leads down from the entrance hall to the toilets, and to the kitchen on the ground floor. There are thirty steps in the staircase between the entrance hall and the reception rooms, and another forty steps lead from the reception rooms to the bedroom floor. A staircase with twenty-four steps connects the bedroom floor with the gallery located on the top floor of the house.

Portable folding chairs

Portable folding chairs are available to loan and use, from the museum's cloakroom. We recommend that visitors with restricted mobility take these chairs with them on guided tours and visits to exhibitions, as the museum has a limited number of seats on each floor.

Large print texts and texts in 10 languages

Large print information texts about the reception rooms are available to borrow when you visit. We provide texts about the reception rooms in the following languages: Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
