Very interesting museum going into the history of Volvo. It's not at all commercial (I was expecting it to be like a car showroom). You'll come a way with lots of interesting little facts, like the fact Volvo didn't patent the 3 point seat belt because they wanted as many people as possible to benefit from it, not just Volvo...

Having a motor trade background, I am always suspicious of 'showroom type' museums which consist of endless cars in prestigne condition bubble wrapped by rails and fences so that you can hardly appreciate them. That was my first impression when entering this place, but as I walked quickly on things quickly on things began to change with plenty of static... More

I loved this because I love cars. Don't bother if you don't...A massive headache to get there on public transport and a bit pricey, but you can't go to Gothenburg without visiting its most famous brand!

I did enjoy the visit and the history of the Volvo company is very interesting but the people in our group who appreciated it most were the Volvo drivers, people who had worked on the cars or sold them. I liked the concept car designed by women - it was pretty except the gull wing doors - I mean how... More

The Volvo Museum in Göteborg is more than worth a visit, certainly when you are a “Volvo Lover” we personally had 2 Volvo Amazon from 1966 and a 1969, not to speak from the other we have driven. We visited the museum with our best friend, who is already 20 years the President of the Brazilian Volvo Club in São... More

I grew up driving volvo's and really appreciated visiting the mothership and taking in their history. However, I'm not certain I would have made the trip 30+ mins outside the city if I wasn't so supportive of the brand.

The museum is a bit far from the city, the bus drives through the cargo port, just stay on the bus. The museum bus stop could be marked better. Otherwise a great experience.

I spend a day with my teenage son in this fantastic place. Here you can follow the history of Volvo from the start to today's fancy cars. Some trucks you can try out things in the cabin to similate real driving. When you are done with all the cars ands trucks you can have a coffee and soft drinks and... More

The Museum shows Volvo's history from the beginning in 1927 (with the original desk of the two founders and their communication methods) until recent with also a hall that is totally designated to the Volvo Ocean Race. Apart from cars you'll find trucks and engines (and a Viggen jet) with its engine on display. This museum is not as attractive... More

Very nice set-up where you will discover the whole range of Volvo products, not only cars, along its history and learn about all the safety features that Volvo has invented.
