Volvo Museum, Gothenburg Reviews
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.
Museum wise, there is not much to do in Gothenburg. We ventured out from the city center by bus... Quite a journey. The cruise ships pull in adjacent which probably accounts for 90% of their visitors. The museum itself has a great history and the brand's history is well documented. Gear heads will appreciate it more than the average punter.
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.
A museum with very interesting contents and interactive experience. Good for family. Speaking as someone who has almost no interest in cars, it was still a good place to visit as it gave many fun facts not only about Volvo cars but also the histories and social backgrounds. And the museum is a good starting point to visit the surrounding grounds along the shoreline. Plan well because public transport is not as convenient as in other part of the city.
