  • Best museum I have ever seen !!! It tells you about the story of Gothenburg so it is very instructive. The museum is really well organized with a tour from prehistoric roots, vikings and then 1700 and 1800. The tour is quite easy to follow. It makes you want to learn. It is truly interactive. You have a lot of explanations. You can touch the textiles, hear the musics. It is perfect for all ages. I just loved it ! And the building is really nice. Plus it is free for under 25 so if you just want to heat from the cold outside and go to the toilets I recommand making a short detour by this museum !

  • Surprisingly this was a great museum. There were some great pieces of artwork and sculptures to look at. I went in the middle of winter so the museum was not very busy and it was good just to wall around and not having to push around. I would assume during summer and spring this museum would be busy. If you are in Gothenburg definitely check this museum out.

  • Extremely well made museum in which the entire Gothenburg history is presented, from the first people who stepped in on the land up until current days. What I liked most about the museum was the medieval section because it was extremely interactive, from sound to air being blown and the entire decor. You could also use headsets to listen to what people were saying on the streets on a section called "Gossip village", but you did have to know Swedish to understand what they were saying. What is also cool is that if you are under 25, you can get in for free. Unfortunately, I wasn't, but I paid 10 euros for the three main museums of the city under an annual pass. I didn't get to visit them all, but I hope to return soon.

  • Not knowing much of Swedish history, this museum was a great way to learn something new. The exhibits are fascinating, and I especially enjoyed the Viking ship and all the related artefacts. The timelines helped me to fit the Swedish picture into the history that I do know. I think this museum is essential for any visitor to the city. The good cafe makes it possible to spend a whole day there

  • Really nice museum with a detailed description and depiction of Gothenburg’s early days and history. Did not manage to make it to the special exhibition, definitely recommend more than 1.5h there. Entrance for youth under the age of 25 is free.
