School visits

The aim of the Hallwyl Museum is to promote lifelong, enjoyable learning which everyone can take part in and which gives everyone the opportunity to share knowledge. The Hallwyl Museum is a former private home, dating from 1898, which has remained completely unchanged. The contents of the museum cover cultural, social and economic history and the history of ideas.

The museum gives an insight into people's lifestyles and customs during the late 19th and early 20th century. In addition, the décor offers the opportunity to learn to identify different historical styles and types of furniture. The many portraits offer a basis for discussions on the ideal of beauty and the concept of gender.

What can the Hallwyl museum contribute to teaching in the classroom?

The outstanding feature of the Hallwyl Museum is doubtlessly the fact that the house has remained unchanged since the start of the 20th century. All the objects within the household have been preserved -  both everyday items and the extensive art and craft collections.

The museum is an aristocratic home dating back just over 100 years. We offer unique opportunities for teachers and pupils to become immersed in history and culture. The museum can act as an exciting complement to classroom textbooks. The museum employs education specialists who have extensive experience of working with children and young people. There are numerous opportunities for cooperation between school and museum on a wide range of subjects.

Children and young people under 19 years of age enter the reception rooms and normal guided tours free of charge. Individual students and whole classes are very welcome to visit parts of Wilhelmina von Hallwyl's home and collections without a guide. Please let us know about your visit in advance if you come as a group so that we can make preparations.
