  • Offers very many changing exhibitions. Unfortunately, some equipment out of service, and a lot of facts/information out of date, but all in all a pleasant experience.

  • Here you can go on forever. We were here with our 1-year-old daughter, who thought the mammal Hall and all stuffed birds was incredibly fascinating.

  • This museum should be in a museum. Had it not rained, I would not have paid to pass through. The house and collection is dusty, smells of formaldehyde and the animals seem to have died a second death ...  more »

  • The best place to visit in Gothenburg! The blue whale is a must-see in this museum! They have an amazing collection of animals. Totally worth a visit. Spend a day here and you wouldn't regret. They also have a small cafe downstairs if u need to take a break in between.
  • It's located within Slottsskogen. It's one of the best museums I've ever been in Sweden. It has a lot of well preserved animal's specimens or replica from prehistoric time until modern time. The building has three levels, the first level is entrance and cafe, second and third are the exhibition area. I would recommend this place especially to the one who have kids, because it's a very good educational and recreational place. The best of all is it's admission free.
  • Simply a must visit IMO. Noticeably old, but it reminds me of the ones I'd visit in NY in the '80s. The main hall upstairs is impressive, with hundreds of mammals. I love it there. Birds surround the hall, more than I could possibly count. On the first floor, it tells the history of the world, throughout the eras, with separate sections on fish and insects. It really has an old feel throughout, so if that bothers you, your opinion may differ from mine. The whale room is less spectacular, but many disagree with me on that. However a few times a year you can go into the whale (in the summer and during Christmas/Jul). Fun and packed with displays, I've been four times in two years and my kids still haven't tired of it. Love it.
  • Love it. A proper old-fashioned natural history museum. Stuffed animals and atmosphere galore. World's best example of a stuffed African elephant, and world's only stuffed blue whale.
  • Lots of factual exhibits. Great to see such a range of wild life and the historical context. The bird section is enormous.
