This is situated in a lovely park in Gothenburg - it houses an extensive collection of animal exhibits which I found very interesting. Even better, it was free for under 25s. The building also has a nice café and gift shop.

Plenty of stuffed exhibits including the worlds only stuffed blue whale and a giant African elephant, and plenty of info in English. Less interesting for adults.

Not quite worth it. Better than nothing, but... Stockholm's museum is somewhat better, but nothing compared to Vienna's. If you want to find something kid-friendly to do - you can do better.

We didn't get to see much of it because we got there late and was fascinated by the section of birds they had! It was row after row about birds! And fish and other animals but we didn't have time.. it was cool though! Recommended for animal lovers who want to see every species! Also free of charge if under... More

I like it at all! There is place for eating with children, the museum is within a very big park with zoo. It's a very interesting museum especially for children - with real elephant, Simba the lion and things like this...

Hugh collection of birds. They have Hugh collection of other animals as well. Only thing I hated about this place is . not to have any description in English. All of it is in Swedish and you cannot understand what is written. You have to just look at it.

The museum was very nice apart from that no English translation existed for the exhibits. It is upon a hill before starting exploring the park...

It is neat because most of it was done in the late 1800s to early 1900s, which gives it a Darwinian Nautralist feel. But make no mistake, it's more taxidermy than you'll likely ever see again.
