Friends of the Museum

The purpose of the association is to provide financial and charitable support for the museum, and to promote the study of subjects relating to the museum.

The association was founded in 2000 and now has around 100 members. Friends of the museum can take guided tours behind the scenes. We have looked inside cupboards, wardrobes and other places that are normally hidden. We have also seen the Countess's wedding dress, calling cards and medical equipment of the period.
The association also arranges regular outings; one of the places which the friends of the museum have visited is Södertuna in Södermanland, where Wilhelmina and Walther von Hallwyl's eldest daughter Ebba lived for a while with her family.
