Building dreams

During summer 2022, visitors had a chance to see a number of incredible LEGO® creations. People of all ages, both professionals and amateurs, were showcasing their creations.

The Hallwyl Museum is a dream building in itself, and was created by Wilhelmina and Walther von Hallwyl. When the house was built between 1893 and 1898, the von Hallwyls took the opportunity to install the latest technology – showers, elevators, telephones, hot and cold running water. There was a skittles court, a billiard room and gymnasium as well as space for Wilhelmina’s extensive art collections. This dream home eventually became the Hallwyl Museum, which is a popular Stockholm destination for all the family.
