  • Is a little off but worth a visit for both adults and children. Most cars of all time there and even trucks and marine engines mm. Fimvisning in the beginning and very nice staff.

  • The exhibition is quite nice, could but with little effort even more attractive designs are. Much seems very dusty and so that it is not necessarily viewed as a marketing tool. Many animations no longer work in the ocean - race Hall. The Volvo boutique acts almost like a REA - shop or simply as a junk shop. What a pity!

  • Here you will find quaint shops and cafes with everything from chocolates and marshmallow to antiques and interiors. Everything in an atmospheric setting with beautiful old houses and cobbled streets.

  • 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.
