Once you are in Gothenborg you should go and visit. Very nice and interesting overview of the brand. I went there by myself and have to say I enjoyed very much even I´m woman. I found out a lot of information where you can find some Volvo engines or components I didn´t know before. Take tram no 5 from Korsvagen... More

If you are in Gothenburg, you should definitely visit Volvo Museum. Here you could walk through the history of Volvo and experience some landmark inventions. The whole museum tour takes atleast 1 hour but there is no limit on how much time you can spend, so just get easy and take some good snaps if you are an Auto enthusiast.

Loved seeing the history of the Volvo cars from concept to actual street cars. It is a bit out of the way but is worth the trip to see the history of the brand.

If your on a cruise (and your lucky) you should dock a few yards from the museum main entrance. Its 60 Swedish Kroner per person and there is a lot to see, Volvo cars from the start of production, a familiarisation film available in most languages, then through a bit of a warren of rooms on two floors. Trucks, boat... More

We have been to several car museums, but this museum is unique because it is for the Volvo brand only. It is located in the Arendal area about 10 km west of Gothenburg city centre near some of the cruise docks. If you are on a cruise, make sure you save some time for this museum. You can spend at...

You'll see the history of the development of the Volvo - from its early start as a bus to today's concept cars and everything in between. The cars are nicely displayed and curated, with helpful information. You'll want to take a car home with you when you leave!

Though it is situated a bit far from city centre, the museum itself is interesting and quite informative. You will learn about different development Volvo has on the business and events they hold. Free admission, worth to go (1-2hr) if you have time

Our visit to the Volvo Museum was included in the Overseas Delivery of our new automobile. While there was a small admission fee for the general public, we were given a voucher for free admission as part of our OSD package. The history of Volvo was fascinating, and decades of vehicles were on display including public transportation and futuristic concept... More

Take a walk thru Volvo history. Several models of cars, trucks, busses, jet and tank engines that guides you thry years of development. Don't loose the opportunity to take a ride on the Truck simulator and see how good you are on fuel saving. I've being there 3 times, and would easily take the 4th.
