Thielska Galleriet

Thielska Galleriet is an art museum in the Djurgården park area of Stockholm, Sweden. Represented are the members of the Artists Association (Konstnärsförbundet) from the early 1900s as well as one of the world's largest collections of works by Edvard Munch.

The museum was originally the private residence and art gallery of the banker and collector Ernest Thiel (1859–1947) who acquired art made by his contemporaries among Scandinavian artists, such as Bruno Liljefors, Anders Zorn, Eugène Jansson and Edvard Munch.

The housewas built in 1904–1907 and was designed in Art Nouveau style with white facades by architect Ferdinand Boberg (1860-1946). The inauguration took place in March 1907. By 1922, Thiel had lost his fortune and he was forced to sell the villa, collection and fixtures. The gallery was acquired by the state in 1924 and opened to public in 1926. Since then, the building has been rebuilt and modernized several times.
