I went specifically to see the Romer Exhibit. I found the exhibit to be an informative, artistic, historic work which encompassed social commentary in an unobtrusive manner. I did view some of the historic sections of the museum also, and found that there was an interesting assortment of history related to the city. Much of this portion was not interactive,... More

The good: This small museum fools you in thinking there's not much to see but it is quite the opposite! The only exhibited Viking ship (well, what is left of it) and the adjoining exhibition about the Vikings is a MUST SEE! Well done and most of the museums exhibits are explained in Swedish and English and give you a... More

Located right in the old part of town on the canal, this museum offers an interesting history of the area. I was impressed with the Viking display, which includes the remains of a Viking ship. There are good descriptions in English and Swedish [at least up to the Viking era]. After that it is mostly in Swedish only, but for... More

You can learn about history there, a lot of things to do, and a really nice playground if you have children

Really enjoyed this museum - especially the viking part and learning about Gothenburg through the ages. Everything in english too, staff helpful, great entrance price at 40 kr which also gets you into the art museum and other places on the same ticket.

I wanted my teenage daughters to know a little bit about Gothenburg's history, not just be familiar with the shopping centers down town, so I convinced them that it would be worth spending 2 hours at "Stadsmuseet". After a bit hesitation they followed me. I was surprised how interested they got after just 10 minutes inside the museum. Of course... More

Great value for the entry fee. The Viking exhibit is really cool! Almost everything is translated into English. Follow the history of Gothenburg from the Stone Age to almost present times. We really enjoyed it!

It was kind of a mash up of things, but very interesting. We were quite disappointed because the English displays for items disappeared about halfway through the museum. I would have liked to have known what I was looking at. We had a good time though and the displays were great!

If you're interested in Vikings, then this is your place, with good explanations. There's also a lot of history of the city, but the Viking part is just perfect.
