    Very nice Museum with themed rooms and many Volvo models from early examples to more modern ones. Of suitable size, requires at least an hour and a half to be seen well. Admission included in the Gothenburg card. Recommend to visit Monday through Friday as the weekend the bus at the Museum runs only on reservation and often on the telephone number of the transport company nobody answers. For the return, due to the call center of bus not accessible, we were taken by car (clearly a volvo) to the nearest bus stop toward the Center from a very nice girl. You can also take a walk of about 3 km to the bus stop Sorredsvagen. Worth a visit despite its location away from the Centre.
