There is nothing to see except normal cars. it's not like a museum. it's like a auto show. Every single person in our group regretted that he went.

Upon entering, I was impressed with the cleanliness and order of the museum. The care and attention to detail given to each exhibit is impressive. The gift shop is pricey, but if this is a once in a lifetime visit, it may be very well worth it. The blend of trucks, cars, boat engines, and even a suspended jet all... More

Lots of cars, but also boats, engines, trucks and even a couple of airplanes. A nicely done museum, worth the visit.

We have had several Volvos and still drive Volvo today. This is the place to visit when you are visiting Göteborg and love Volvos.

The great Volvo ocean race is also covered and the 2015 finished will... More

If you like cars, this is the place for you in Gothenburg, Volvo's home town. Amazing historic pieces at this museum, great to understand why Volvo is what is today and how they are able to keep alive their heritage and values so alive. Don't miss it!
