If you like cars, this is the place for you in Gothenburg, Volvo's home town. Amazing historic pieces at this museum, great to understand why Volvo is what is today and how they are able to keep alive their heritage and values so alive. Don't miss it!

We have visited many car factory museums around the world. Somehow Volvo has missed a trick here - one does not leave feeling like one simply 'has to buy a Volvo'! When we visited the Mercedes factory museum we simply 'really really wanted to get a Merc'.... same with VW, Audi plant in Wolfsburg, and the Corvette factory in Kentucky... More

It should not take more than 1 h to see the whole exhibition, unless you want to read every panel. I liked the first part most, with some pieces of history, the Lego bricks Volvo car, which by the way it's quite newly exhibited and of course the war planes and engines.

There are also good exhibits of other Volvo items such as trucks, heavy equipment, and buses. Vehicle exhibits discuss technology, design, and safety features developed over time. Several of the items on display are unique examples - such... More

For a Volvo fan or for those having a special interest in cars, this is a perfect place. Many models, also concept cars and those personally driven by the P G Gyllenhammar can be seen. We visited with a group of customers and hired a guide. That was a good choice as she could tell much more than could easily... More
