  • Even for me who is not a huge car enthusiasts, it was very rewarding with a visit to the Museum. Got a little extra fond of the older models that are extremely beautiful! If you still want to watch cars is both the Saab Museum in Trollhättan o Ferrari Modena well worth a visit!

  • 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.
  • A little far from the center of Gothenburg but easily accessible by car. You will be able to see all the historical models that Volvo made (Cars, Trucks, Construction Vehicles, Military, etc) and some concept cars that never got released as well as concept cars for actual models like S60, XC60 and XC90.

  • Interesting museum with all the OEM's history. No people around for questions.
  • Great place to visit and learn about Volvo's history.
  • A must for car lovers. Take a tour of the history of one of the great auto makers. Be warned it's quite far out and on Sundays you'll need to order the 32 bus in advance!
