  • Great place to get to know and see Volvo's history. Truly inspiring. If you are a Volvo aficionado you will enjoy it even more. I loved walking through each decade of Volvo's evolution.

  • It was too long of a trip (from Gothenburg) for someone like me that doesn't really have a big passion for cars. However the place was nice and well made. I liked looking at historical cars and reading about the history of Volvo. Also the small track with toy cars for kids was a nice touch. I only wish they would have had one historical car that people could sit on and take pics with.

  • Very nice museum - would be great to be visited once. Beautiful cars - showing the history of Volvo cars from the first car they produced and gives you a glimpse on the future, how they are moving forward with the technology. Gift shop is very limited, it would have been great if we could get more car models instead of the few models that are there. Lacks interactive material, and simulators only work in occasions - not in regular days.

  • Nicely set up exhibition. Not only do they show old cars (there are plenty of those), they also tell the story of how the brand became what it is today. I was pleasantly surprised by the Volvo Ocean race exhibition. Complete with 1:1 models, it's truly a experience on it's own. The Ocean race exhibition is interactive, but the rest of the museum isn't aimed at children.

  • Located alongside the cruise ship terminal made it very easy for to visit this fantastic museum. Cars, vans and lorries were all on display and were easily accessed in this huge modern space. I particularly enjoyed the cars, many of which I can remember seeing on the road when I was a much younger man! The Volvo Museum was a highlight of a recent Baltic Cruise and, in its own way, gave me as much pleasure as the trip to The Hermitage or Faberge.
