One of the main attractions of the Hallwyl Museum is the collection of Dutch and Flemish paintings. There are about 160 of them and they include works by several notable artists of the 16th and 17th centuries and all manner of subjects are represented. They were largely acquired through the agency of the art dealer Bukowski in Stockholm and over a period of a few years. In 1905 the attic of the house was converted into a top-lit picture gallery to accommodate the main part of the collection where it is still exposed.

Apart from the Dutch and Flemish paintings the collection is very heterogeneous and includes both paintings of the French, Italian and German schools as well as family portraits and Swedish and other foreign 19th century paintings.

All in all the collection contains 416 inventory numbers.
