Just twenty minutes away from the centre of town you’ll find Millesgården, an art gallery and beautiful lookout point on Lidingö.
Millesgården was the home of the artist couple Carl and Olga Milles back in the early 1900’s, and opened up for the public in the end of the 1930’s when the couple donated their home to a foundation with the aim to make it a museum, open for everyone to visit.
Millesgården’s sculpture garden with its terraces and fountains shows the famous works by Carl Milles, with a view towards the industries in Ropsten and the harbour of Värtahamnen in the background.
The sculpture garden is worth a visit on its own, independent of any exhibition in the gallery. The café offers great food and cakes in a cosy atmosphere but it’s a bit expensive.
