And if you are interested in Volvo and the history of their carbuilding then you must go there. The museum is placed right by the sea so you can also take a nice walk after. You will find cars of all stages in Volvos car building history, information with every car also in english and of course the ever so... More

A great museum showcasing the legendary Volvo. A must see for car enthusiasts of any type, not just Volvo fans. Right in the heart of Volvo land, not too far from Gothenburg.

Nice displays showcase Volvo's history from early , functional designs up until modern functional designs. Oh, that's not quite fair - the entire spectrum of Volvo is represented here from modern concept cars to rally winners and even the car than made The Saint extra cool in the 60's - Simon Templar's 1800! It's a bit of a cab ride... More

We just picked up our new Volvo from the factory nearby as part of their Overseas Delivery program. Naturally we had to visit the museum! First of all, it is quite a distance from the city so arrival by car is advised. I'm sure you can get there on the excellent public transit but just beware it will be quite... More

If its a rainy day and you've a couple of hours to kill its ok. It shows the history of Volvo from beginning to end. Lots of cars and trucks from all eras. If you like cars you'll probably enjoy this.

Our cruise ship recently spent a short time in Gothenburg and I was determined to visit the Volvo Museum. It is located at Arundel which is a bit out of the town but some cruise ships dock very close by. Our ship docked about a 15 minute walk away but we were greeted by the friendly manager, Soren Nyeboe, who... More

If you have an interest in cars, this museum is worth the effort to visit. It covers the almost 90 years of company activities through a very interesting and often eclectic display of vehicles ranging from cars to truck, buses and tractors. They even have jet engines, heavy equipment and boat engines. I especially enjoyed the rally and concept cars.... More

The conventional Volvo museum is good on the history of the company and it's developments. However, there is something far more interesting which is not general knowledge...The Blue Train Factory Tour. This train takes visitors right into the heart of the factory, where the robots rule! Truly amazing and far more interesting than the Museum. Here's the link: http://www.volvocars.com/se/top/about/corporate/visit-volvo/pages/blue-train.aspx You... More
