“Stuffy to say the least”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

If your interest runs to taxidermy, then this is the place for you. Thousands of stuffed animals and birds in glass cases. Again the Swedes' ability to confuse with ambiguous information came to the fore when it came to finding our way around.

“very good, but for a particular type of audience...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

this place, just like most of the other attractions of gothenburg, is very well organised. all the exhibits bring to life the true awe-effect of the animals and other living creatures.
a MUST visit here is the blue whale exhibit... supposedly, this exhibit is the biggest whale on display, in the entire world. even otherwise, this exhibit gives true sense of how big the creature can be, which otherwise is beyond imagination.

“Lovely museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

The museum has a grand stuffed up blue whale (the world's only!) and some other stuffed up cool animals. Not recently renovated the museum has a lovely style.

“Very interesting museum.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

This museum of natural is like the most but they also have some unique collections. A rainy day would be perfect for a visit at this museum - situated in the outskirts of Slottskogen.

“Reminds me of university”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

This museum reminds me of the one back at university in the biology department. It is mostly just stuffed animals, which grow boring after a while. Perhaps I would have felt more engaged if I could speak Swedish, but I ended up zipping round the museum instead, not learning anything.

It's a very cheap museum to visit - 40SEK gets you a year-long ticket for not only the Natural History museum but also the art museum and more. Also it is free for under 25s which is a bonus.
