Drottningholm Palace Open today 11.30-16.00

Museum de Vries

A unique collection of sculptures from the Dutch sculptor Adriaen de Vries (1556–1626) can be seen at the old Dragoon Stables from the 1700s.

Bronze sculptures dating back to the beginning of the 1600s were brought to Sweden as booty and were eventually placed in the Drottningholm Palace Park.

Today these sculptures have been replaced by modern bronze casts and the originals can be seen at the Museum De Vries. The museum contains the world's largest collection of Adriaen De Vries' work.

The Museum is open on the yearly 'Museum de Vries Day'. The Museum is open year round for group guided tours booked in advance.
