  • Good varied collection of art. Some modern some old, painting and sculpture all housed in a really nice building. I found the layout made it hard to be sure I hadn't missed anything but that might just be me.
  • It's free for under 25, at least for now. It's really worthy spending one hour there, maybe two, to see everything. Saying that they have a strange sense of order and you can find Greek stuff mix with everything and things like that.
  • Did I like it? Very much!! So many great paintings! I have to go back some day! Would I recommend it? Of course! What did i cost? 40sek. Unless you already have the "Årskortet", then it's free. (Special exhibitions are extra) Suitable for everyone? Yes I think so but are many steps to every floor but I think there is elevator available to every floor as well. How was the service? Good!
  • Sad🙁 cameras are not allowed. But it was really nice inside I should have been allowed to take some photos!
  • One of Gothenburgs nicer museums with great restaurant and bars nearby.
