Description: A JOURNEY THROUGH VOLVO'S HISTORY Welcome to a world of iconic car models...
A JOURNEY THROUGH VOLVO'S HISTORY Welcome to a world of iconic car models, groundbreaking innovations and imaginative prototypes. At Volvo Museum you can take a trip through Volvo's history and heritage, all the way from the start in 1927. Our collection encompasses a wide range of passenger cars, buses and heavy trucks as well as marine engines and construction equipment. But you don't have to be a petrolhead (or a dieselhead for that matter) to appreciate Volvo Museum. There's lots for everybody to experience - whether you want to learn about a unique piece of Swedish 20th century history or just want to be nostalgic about the good old times. And the youngest ones will enjoy the childrens' car -- a classic Volvo to play around in.

Well set out museum

Lots of interesting exhibits if you're into Volvo's (I'm not!) and whilst it's well worth a visit it just reinforced my views of what boring cars Volvo make!

If you are a Volvo aficionado, this is the place for you. The collection ranges from some magnificent examples of the early years through the cars that never made production to all the favourites through the years. If you have small kids, the children's section is good, basic fun, as they can pretend to drive a car (or truck) and... More

Visited the museum for free after pricking up a new car from the Volvo Delivery Center up the street. The museum is your typical car museum... starts off with a film about the founding and evolution of Volvo through the years, and discusses Volvo's commitment to safety. Then the tour takes you through Volvo through the ages with some very... More

We enjoyed strolling through the museum. We were in town to do the Overseas Factory Delivery for our new Volvo and they gave us tickets to check out the museum. It was interesting to see all the old cars and how much has changed in not that long amount of time.

The museum itself was really quality, close to the factory, and it guides you through from the beginning and... More

Not easy to get to but worth the trip upon arrival. Obviously a specialised thing but worth going. Staff were very helpful upon arrival and arranged a bus to pick us up on hour and half as it was a Sunday.

In order to understand Volvo, you need to visit Sweden. And when visiting Sweden to miss the Volvo museum might be a great miss. The museum was extended a bit in the last few years. It is not a big fancy and shine industrial museum, but shows in good simple way the Volvo way, the Swedish way.
