Accessibility – the museum does not have any elevator

The Hallwyl Museum has five floors. Since there is no lift, you will need to climb the stairs. The number of steps varies, depending on where you want to get to in the house. If you want to go on a guided tour of the house, this would entail at least 103 steps up and down.
