  • Had a great time at the Museum. It was interesting to see the evolution of the Volvo engineering. The Museum shows the first car, a car from Lego, auto current King of Sweden, as well as different cars of all time. There are also buses, trucks, tractors Volvo. Enjoy the Museum for adults and children.

  • Worth visiting! The museum offers great insight of the history of the brand and the present time, but in contrast the innovation area is unimpressive. There is a good area with many activities for kid...  more »

  • Tucked away at the back of an industrial estate in a building which, from the outside looks as if it's not worth traveling this far for, contains a massive collection of all things Volvo. The place is a Tardis and has a range from their cars, racing, trucks, buses, experimental and what looks like a large event space mainly to display their ocean race things. It was really quiet when we went, perhaps as it was prettymuch the first day of spring and as it's all indoors, it's probably great idling away a cold winter's afternoon. Not so interactive so probably most of interest to adults who can go "ooh, we had one like this" but at interesting history for anyone interested in automobiles.
  • Don't go out of your way to see it. Very old with minimal amenities.could be better. Also there is a fee to see the museum. Should be free if they are trying to sell you on there product right? At least that's what the Mercedes Benz museum does... Step up your game Volvo and be proud of your heritage.
  • It was a nice experience to see the evaluation of the Volvo car! This visit actually brought slot of memories to me since we owned a Volvo in the past. We had some school kids who in fact liked the place and found it pretty interesting.
  • Ever since I was a little boy I've liked Volvo very much, but after having visited the museum I love this car! Great exhibition with lots of history, anecdotes and shiny vehicles from the early beginning. Simply awesome.
  • Not too big place. Big tricks for kids to sit in. Nice area for kids to play. Very clean and tidy
