Categories: History Museums, Specialty Museums, Museums
Established in 1861, Göteborgs Stadsmuseum takes visitors through West Sweden's history from the Viking Age to the present day. The cultural museum sits inside the 18th-century East India House, and an exhibit details the evolution of the company. Artifacts include Viking coins, jewelry, tools, a ship, and an original key to the city gates. Be aware that although displays are very informative and interesting, there is little English signage. The site does offer guided tours, a playroom for children, and a cafe.

в музей можно попасть по билету Художественного музея. Хотела посмотреть пирогу викингов, но увидела только ее нос. В целом музей небольшой, но интересный и познавательный.in the Museum you can get ticket Museum of art. Wanted to see the pie Viking, but saw only her nose. Total Museum is a small but interesting and informative.show original
Although the exhibition on music scene in Gothenburg was good, the fact that some of the main permanent galleries were closed was disappointing - including those on the history of the city
Small museum with interesting exhibits in a beautiful building. A wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon in Göteborg.
The museum hosts a broad collection of historical artefacts that illustrate Gothenburg's history from its humble beginnings all the way to today. I found the collection of Viking artefacts and particularly the knarr (Viking merchant ship) extremely interesting. The other rooms also held a lot of interesting items such as weapons from various periods, huge copper coins that were issued due to a shortage of silver, and some educational videos as well. The artefacts are nicely displayed and well organized. I would definitely recommend a visit to learn more more about the city's history.
The exhibition about Gothenburgs musical history is great (if you speak swedish..)
If you know nothing about Vikings, this place is for you. Also ticket gets you into a few other local museums.
The Viking ship and other artifacts are AMAZING
