Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde is one of Sweden’s most popular art museums, beautifully situated on Djurgården in Stockholm.
The museum consists of a main building, the Mansion, built in 1903–1905 as a residence for Prince Eugen (1865–1947), and a gallery building that was added in 1913. Prins Eugen, son of King Oscar II and Queen Sophia, was one of the leading landscape painters of his time. He was also an important art collector and a central figure in the Swedish cultural world.
Today, the museum plays host to fine art exhibitions, sculpture and, of course, the Prins’ art collection. The mansion is situated in the most stunning gardens and is worth a trip just for those. Right next to the water, you can see directly across to Södermalm and Nacka.
Throughout the year, the museum hosts Family Sunday’s and at seasonal points (höstlov, sportlov) workshops and extended activities.
