This museum has interesting objects but needs more information to tie the objects to some meaning. The top floor is a collection of objects from Japan and China. Interesting and beautiful to look at but . . . . The next floor is a collection of silver objects but I needed some information to learn something about them. . . not just read a small tag with description. The first floor was the design exhibition. There was a sign about Bauhaus but I had a problem to understand where the objects were. I know a bit about Bauhaus and was a bit confused by the display. There was very little English in the museum. Not at all as bilingual as the City Museum.
So, I would say . . . worth a visit, especially if you buy the three museum yearly card for 100 kr. but it will be looking at objects without getting much information. They have nice restrooms and a place to lock in your belongings in the lower lever. This was greatly appreciated.

Mixed impression. Art and design stretching from Asian, European classic furniture ti Scandinavian design. Good individual pieces. What lacks is coherence to give a united experience from the visit.

This is the only specialized museum of design and art crafts in Sweden, located in the very center of Gothenburg and easy to reach with a tram or by foot. Cheap entrance.
On the third floor is the reinstated asian exhibition and I really estimate the Chinese part. Stay also for a cup of espresso in the café.

Few of the commentary signs were in English which may not have helped and was unusual for Sweden. It was hard to understand the selection criteria and flow of the exhibition. At times I felt I could have been looking at items to be found in a flea market. The Art Museum in Goteborg is fab, this was not. We whizzed round and really wished we hadn't bothered.

We visited recently and I was really impressed with the quality of this museum. The displays are really well done and there is a fair amount of interactivity to keep younger people interested. There is lots to take in and my favourite rooms were on the top floor exhibiting Asian artefacts and also product design through the years particularly the 60’s and 70s. There is a Corbusier kitchen which was really interesting. The current exhibition on ocean plastics is very informative and thought provoking. The cafe is great, nice design, great cakes ( glutenfree and vegan options available) and good coffee. The toilets are immaculate! And the lockers and cloak room are free. The building is a joy and has been beautifully adapted to house the collection.

It is Sweden's museum of design and decorative arts with many temporary and permanent exhibitions and tours. Its design history's displays exhibits from early 19th century, 20th century and today's society.Falk simon's collection of gold and silver objects is very good.

A great introduction to modern Swedish design, this relaxed museum traces Swedish domestic design from 1851 to modern day by means of iconic domestic gadgets and furniture. It is well presented in a modern wing of the building and includes all sorts of evocative objects from an early microwave, which is unrecognisable, to chairs which have remained uber-cool since they were designed in the Thirties. The Le Corbusier Kitchen which comes from one of his definite housing blocks in post-War France is wonderfully stylish and practical, creating a template for modern kitchens ever since. If you have ever wondered what defines Skandi-Design, go to this Museum and see it all at first hand.

The museum is nice, and well organized. But compared to other bigger cities exhibition this was small, but nevertheless it was good. We had a nice walk in the museum and shop before shopping in the city centre.
