Lots of taxidermy, but unique.

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... read 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...

Obviously not as big as Natural History Museum in London or the US varients, but still has quiet an extensive collection of animals, fishes and plants. 40SEK for adults and free for youth (25 or young) and children.

This museum provides its visitors with a huge variety of dead and alive animal creatures. The time we were there they had a live exhibition about snakes and spiders. Great place to visit. We spent almost one full day inside before we had to leave for our ferry going back to Denmark.

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
