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

We wanted to visit the Volvo Museum during our trip to Gothenburg, but couldn't find an easy way to get there from the centre. Then, hidden away in the Volvo Museum website, was the option to visit by boat courtesy of Gothenburg Harbour Tours (www.goteborgshamntur.se). What a find! The 19th Century ship departs from the Maritiman Museum near the Opera... More

Cars, trucks, buses, a jet plane, prototypes, the fouding fathers's desk, safety Equipment - there is nothing missing at the museum which is situated in the old docklands of Arendal in Göteborg. Start the visit with a short film, then wander through the exhibition and end the visit in the shop. Staff is friendly, the museum very open and light... More

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.
