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

Basically a museum of old taxidermy, the collection is extensive however very old and worn. The displays could use a lot of refreshing and cleaning

The exhibits were nice but we were really hampered by the fact that most (90%) didnt have English labelling. Despite that we enjoyed walking around, looking at the whales etc

I thought the Natural History Museum in Gothenburgh was well worth a visit. Especially if it's raining outside and you are looking for something to do, but also if you are interested in the history of Gothenburg. I think we got in for free with our Gothenburg City Card so if you are planning to make use of public transport... More

It's quite a boring place. It is not worth the efforts to get there. Of course if you're crazy about stuffed animals and birds this place is for you. The most of inscriptions are in Sweden. And as far as I can understood there is only one toilet in the building; and it's very strange for Sweden. But there is... More

Lots of fun and detailed exhibits on natural history, mostly animals. The human body exhibit was closed during our visit, but the rest of the museum was still interesting enough to warrant the entry price :)

If your interest runs to taxidermy, then this is the place for you. Thousands of stuffed animals and birds in glass cases. Again the Swedes' ability to confuse with ambiguous information came to the fore when it came to finding our way around.
