Curator: Christina G. Wistman

Waldemarsudde, originally the home of "Painter Prince" Eugen (1865-1947), is now among the art galleries attracting the highest visitor figures in Sweden. The complex consists of a castle-like main building from 1903-05 and a gallery building which was added in 1913.

The Manor was closed from March - September 2001 for renovation.

The contemplation spot for Rodin's Thinker used to be outside, near a one thousand year-old oak tree. During the renovation of the Manor, the pensive Poet was placed on an unpretentious pallet.
