The design museum has just opened after several years of construction. The new facilities and display is well worth a visit. Among other they have a very impressive colloction of Japanese Netsuke, at this time enclosed in a dedicated Japaneese exhibition. Also some fine examples...More

Saw this museum while passing on a tram and on the way back we stopped and went in. It's not a big place but is worth visiting. For me the best bit was the 1st floor where it showcases household items such as lighting, furniture,...More

Its not the biggest museum in the world, but there is some excellent content. Before planning a visit check what is open. We found 2 of the floors were being prepared for new exhibits. What was left was still good but an hour was enough....More

Disappointingly limited displays. You'd really need to be into contemporary art to appreciate those areas. The Design galleries were badly displayed and lacked any clear narrative information (at least in English signage) explaining the different rooms.

We enjoyed the visit, although not all rooms were open. Exhibitions combined by era, with a selection of dresses and an eclectic collection of objects by a Swedish artist at the end.

A museum full of objects from the past, from the 1800's to the present. The entry fee from Gothenburg city museum also gets you into this one for free. Free toilets and lockers are available as is a gift shop. Ok if you like this...More

Röhsska is not worth a visit. A boring place without any fundamental idea. Very dull and sour staff, stay away.
