Worth a visit for any car enthusiast

Great museum - lots of exhibits from Volvo's history - including BTCC cars. It's a little further out of town - but worth the effort in getting there.

We were extremely disappointed in the museum. The women, who took our entrance fee, stated what we were to do, so fast that we did not understand. Then when I asked her to repeat it, I got an attitude. There were audio tapes available if you spoke Chinese or Swedish. I am sure many english people come to this museum.... More

A museum with an interesting mix of vintage and new Volvo cars as well as Volvo Group vehicles: trucks, buses and construction equipment, on two floors. There is a special wing about Volvo Ocean Race and the Volvo Golf tournaments.

The museum is excellent! If you like all things Volvo of course. There are interactive displays, such as buses that can be sat in. The concept cars are very interesting.

Basically you're paying Volvo to advertise at you, with poorly maintained exhibits (broken screens, non-functioning interactive set ups), and staff that feels it's necessary to use the handicapped-baby changing toilet rather than any of the 5 normal toilets, despite the nearly empty museum having nearly as many diapered children as adult visitors when we were there. Resulting in standing outside... More

Although located on a ( maily Volvo) industrial ara, near the waterfront though, it was easy to find as the museum clearly indicated on road signs ( went by car). A nice fresh building with high ceiling. The exhibition takes you from early cars to modern cars, including even some nice concept cars. Signs in both Swedish as well as... More

You have a complete show on what Volvo Cars have done over the years from the very start until selfdriven cars i the future. Well worth a call and for enjoy a souvernir in the shop.

We were one lover of cars (male), one adult female, and two teens - on public transport it felt quite a hike to get out to this museum, and it was very disappointing overall. The cars were all in fine condition, but there was nothing interactive or really interesting about the displays.

Here you can see almost all of Volvo's different models and even the ones that were never let into the market. Also they they let you do the jorney back in time in good way.
