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.

Good place to go to know more about Volvo products e.g. cars, buses, trucks. Nice souvenirs to buy. You need to take a taxi (recommended) or drive to go to this place as it is located outside the city centre.

Hello, at the moment we have 3 complete buses, 1 chassis and 1 section of a Bus in the exhibition. Unfortunately we have a space restriction and buses are normally big :) There are a few scale models also.
