Insight into one of Swedens most successful companies. Loved the cars and I am not even a car fanatic.

Despite the person at reception telling me that I would need to stay about 1 hour, I stayed about 2.5. Enough to see here. I did not know Volvo did so much. I found the concept cars the most interesting. There are direct buses back to central Gothenburg after 330pm.

Interesting museum both for adults and children lots of cars and trucks from the old days until today. The kids enjoyed "driving" a full scale bus and also playing around the the Ocean Race part.

The Museum situated a bit far from the city centre but it can be reached by bus easily (bus 128 for example). You can learn about the history of the famous brand and sit in trucks and buy nice souvenirs. It's worth visiting!

A historical Volvo show room, walk through time as you will. Found the model my friends drove 25 yrs ago. Excellent if you like cars. The museum shop did not have extensive offerings for purchase was the only disappointment.

From the original desk the two founders used to the most modern of concept cars, and everything in between, it's all here. The display is on two levels. If you like cars, engineering, technology, trucks, or just Volvo, you must go here. Like the BMW Museum or Mercedes, it's a destination in its own right.

I accompanied my volvo loving partner to this museum assuming I would need my itouch to keep me occupied, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasnt needed. Getting to this museum seemed quite a challenge for some unknown reason, even the volvo loving swedes are at a loss to its location. Tram and bus was going to take an hour... More

This is a place to learn about the Volvo history. You should note that Volvo is so much more than the car business that no longer is owned by the Volvo group. This museum is co owned by the Volvo group and Volvo cars so you can see the entire history from the first trucks and cars through aircraft engines... More
