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

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.

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...

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.
