A JOURNEY THROUGH VOLVO'S HISTORY Welcome to a world of iconic car models, groundbreaking innovations and imaginative prototypes. At Volvo Museum you can take a trip through Volvo's history and heritage, all the way from the start in 1927. Our collection encompasses a wide range of passenger cars, buses and heavy trucks as well as marine engines and construction equipment. But you don't have to be a petrolhead (or a dieselhead for that matter) to appreciate Volvo Museum. There's lots for everybody to experience - whether you want to learn about a unique piece of Swedish 20th century history or just want to be nostalgic about the good old times. And the youngest ones will enjoy the childrens' car -- a classic Volvo to play around in.

Volvo-museum is just great! They change collection time to time and there is always something new to see. If you are into cars, you are into this museum.

Dear Martyn, It is so nice to hear that you were generally happy about your visit. Yes, we are a bit short of Merchandise related to Cars at the moment. Mainly because there was a recent change of the logo type and we haven't been able to stock up with the proper stuff yet. For the Summer season that should... More

A bit difficult to find, but well signed, we visited the Volvo Museum. What a great place, with lots of cars from past to future. There also is a Volvo built completely out of Lego! Very nice for the whole family.

Its good simple museum of the old school, telling you the history of Volvo and not seeking to be a place for divourced fathers to take their teenage children when its their turn to have them. Could and should be bigger to do justice to Volvo history, would also like to see them follow Jaguar Land Rover in offering the... More

Museum is located near sea and closed on Mondays and usually open 10 AM to 5 PM except weekends. It has paid entry. As expected, museum is a insight into history of iconic car models and technology by Volvo. It has excellent collection of cars, trucks and construction equipments. It transports you into a era.

A world of iconic car models, innovations and imaginative prototypes. At Volvo Museum you can take a trip through Volvo’s history since the very beginning. Wide range of passenger cars, buses and heavy trucks as well as marine engines and construction equipment. It is not neccesary to be an expert to appreciate Volvo Museum. There’s lots for everybody to experience.

The museum is located a bit outside the city center but well connected with busses. The show area is bib and it takes at least a couple of hours if you want to read all the information and watch all movies. There are Volvo cars from the first model to the laterst state of the art and also many trucks.... More
