  • This museum of art is a lot more expansive and varied in content than we were expecting. It contains a mixture of classical and modern art with an emphasis on Nordic artists. It also has quite a few p...  more »
  • My daughter and I visited my favorite museum in Gothenburg, to see the show Girls, Girls, Girls. A good and a little different exhibition with various elements of moving image and common (though unusual) photographs. Girls who are not posing but are themselves. Norm-breaking images. The Museum Shop is as always a bargain store, not price wise but many funny postcards and great books for the living room table.

  • Gothenburg art museum has a fine collection of Nordic art from 1900-century and beginning of the 20th century. There are not many works of the individual artist, but on the other hand, many artists represented, which makes comparison possible and exciting. The works are accompanied to informative presentation that are not lifted up on a level art history that ordinary people cannot keep up with.

  • It's a perfect museum for the city- small enough to cover what you wanted without needing to cover excess ground to get there. If you find the organization to be confusing that probably also means it's small enough to trek to the work you need to put it together. It wasn't crowded and doesn't seem likely to be, especially if some people maintain a snobby attitude toward it that "there are better museums". I was told that (by international conference attendees I was with) but I told them I enjoyed my afternoon and especially the Swedish artists. It was all very pleasant, including the building, the staff, fellow museum goers and a low key, relaxing experience compared to all of the big "better" museums around the US and Europe.
  • Really worth visiting. Some of the finest paintings and sculptures I have seen. You will need at least two hours to indulge yourself and appreciate the art. As the museum guide (provided inside at the reception) suggests start from the 6th floor and come down.
  • Good museum, wide variety and quiet big enough; just one mistake: Picasso was Spanish, not French
  • Entry fee is 40 kronas. Quite reasonable given the vast collections
  • Allways worth 4€/year to look at the ugly version of Fraiser. Yes it's Karl XII im refering to.
