  • A really good museum of Volvo's history, from the first cars and until now. A great number of special vehicles and concept cars to look at, which is fun. It's not just passenger cars on display, but also trucks, buses, jet engines, marine engines and construction equipment. Is a bit out of town, but well worth a visit.

  • Located quite a ways off town, getting there might be a chore. Well worth the visit though, for the vintage car enthusiast. Has a cafeteria with simple sandwiches att affordable prices and a shop. Great place to catch Pokémon not otherwise found easily in Gothenburg!
  • Great museum, I only wished for more interactions and I kind a didnt get feeling that whole Volvo history was there
  • Well worth a tour to learn about the cars and how important Volvo was to the Swedish economy.
  • 100sek to wander around a very dated building, which is basically a banding exercise for Volvo, where none of the advertised simulators were functioning is just silly. Unless you really enjoy looking at static cars avoid.
  • Very nice place where you can see whole Volvo's history. There are two interactive places - golf simulator (subs Volvo hosts golf tournament) and ocean boat simulator (because of Volvo ocean race). There is also nice gift shop. Very interesting place and I would fully recommend.
