A great collection of 19/20 century art on the top floor. Floor below is 17/8 which is not really my cup of tea, but a wonderful collection. It is really interesting to see the parallels between Scandinavian art and what was happening in the rest of Europe. They had a great temporary exhibition of photography too when I was there,...

Excellent collection of Scandinavian Art from 1880 to 1920 with highlights Munch, Zorn, Carl Larsson, Bruno Liljefors, Ernst Josefsson among others. International highlights must be Rembrant, Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Leger all of top quality.

I discovered here the works of famous artist I have never seen before in books. Picasso, Chagall, Van Gogh, Munk were represented with unknown to me works. And the museum is not overloaded with information.

The collection is much better than my expectation. Some of famous paintings including Picaso and Monet are worth looking at. Less popular Scandinavian painters' works are also good to understand the development history of painting in Scandinavia. The annex photo museum supported Hasselbrad is also worth visiting if you like photo art. As Gothenburg is a small city, it is... More

Art work was ok with some big names but there was just no atmosphere, hardly any other visitors in there, and it was poorly lit so it was all a bit depressing!

Many fine art works from 19th and 20th century Scandinavian painters and sculptors. This time also an interesting temporary photo exhibition.

Spent several hours at the gallery and the lack of visitors though bad for the museum for great for me. Plenty of time to contemplate the fantastic range of art works! A gem!

Fabulous, take time here. Though I loved the museum I should have allotted more time. They have a very nice permanent collection and the staff I spoke to in the galleries were very helpful.
