Natural History Museum - Review
Gotenburg has some very interesting museums to see. One such place is the Natural History Museum that has the best zoological collections. Over ten millions figurines and stuffed versions of animals have been moved here from all over the world. Situated in the Slottsskogen city park, the museum displays the structure of the earth and the life history of the world and its creatures. The giant blue whale and the huge African elephant are perhaps the most interesting exhibits.
It is important to note here that the blue whale is the world’s only mounted whale. Founded in the year 1833, this museum has become the key centre of the animal and natural history collection. The distinctiveness of the museum lies in its presentation of the earth, the sea life and other environmental issues. Frequent exhibitions are held at this museum which further enhances the tourist interest of the museum. Judging all these features, it is best to say that this is a must visit for all. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Gothenburg itinerary 1 day.

Natural History Museum, Gothenburg Reviews
Lots of birds, mammals, and acquatic species stuffed and preserved, some specimen dating from 1800s. Whales, elephant, giraffe, bears, tigers - they have them all. And even prehistoric dinosaur skeleton. Also, several interactive objects, such as learning radioactivity and fluorescence. And everything is free. There is a large souvenir store with interesting merchandise and a cafe on a ground floor. Prepare to spend several hours there, as collections are really vast.
This is the best natural history museum that I’ve ever been to. The number of specimens they have is truly staggering. It’s a must see if you’re in Gothenburg.
A great place to start the museum tour in Gothenburg. There are various kinds of species to see. After the visiting the museum you can enjoy fika at the cafe of the museum. There is also park and green areas near the museum. Plus there is lots of green areas, little lakes for chilling and hiking.
Free museum and a lot of stuff to see and check. It is an amazing place for artists if they want to have real references. When they open the whale it is really worth the visit, the largest whale mounted in the world.
Awesome to see the natural history. And the museum is free to enter. So a very nice way to spend the time in a cheap way.
