Millesgården is more than a museum; it is also a lovely, relaxing park and garden with an unparalleled view of Stockholm. Examples of Carl Milles’ sculptures can be found in the far corners of the globe. Millesgården was the home of sculptor Carl Milles and his wife, Olga. With remarkable dedication, they first built and then continuously beautified the home.
Carl Milles was also a renowned art collector and todays visitors can enjoy his collection of Greek and Roman antiquities. With its award-winning art gallery and unique works of art, Millesgården is an entity unto itself. In 2008 it celebrated its 100th birthday! The artist’s home, which is the foundation of the museum, was built in 1908.
