This museum has plenty of exhibits (mainly stuffed animals), but little explanation about them, other than a latin species name. Where there is explanation, it is often only in Swedish, which is disappointing considering the number of international visitors to Gothenburg. Positively, the museum offers free admission to under 25s, which meant I did not pay.

This museum founded 1927 has a unique opportunity to get a close encounter to a baby blue whale. It was stranded on the coast in late 1900:th century.

As mentioned by many already - it is one of the 5 museums covered in the single annual ticket. So, if you have small kids who are interested in looking at stuffed animals & you have no other plans then you can visit this place. They do have a huge collection of all kinds of animals but at times it... More

The Natural History Museum is a grand house, where you can go to see a large collection of animals in a familiar environment. The shop is full of nice stuff and there you can find fine gifts to buy. If you're hungry, you can enjoy a coffee and a cookie or some good food in the newly renovated café. Right... More

This is possibly a 2.5. It is a museum of natural and I expected to see some stuffed animals but I also expected to see more explanation to go with the exhibits. Most of the exhibits only had a name attached with no or little explanation about the exhibits. If the price wasn't included in the 40 SEK price for... More

This is one of 5 museums available on the purchase of a 40 SEK ticket. A bargain. Walk up to the top of the hill [many stairs to climb] at the Linneplatsen tram stop. The display of the Blue Whale is not to be missed. I was also impressed with the large mammals. Though many are old they are magnificently... More
