  • Fun to see the old Saab cars. Interesting and worth seeing. Liked the old black and white movie about Eric Carlsson "on the roof". Recommend to see this vehicle history.

  • A great experience for Saab enthusiasts. Staff were excellent and answered any questions we had, very friendly and welcoming. There's not much to do in the surrounding area so I'd recommend staying in...  more »
  • Fun exhibition for you who are interested in the car. Several prototypes that never came into production. Could well be even greater. Quite a small museum.

  • Worth while museum to visit. I have been here twice now while visiting the area. Always a nice display of Saab's on the floor. Wish they would fix the UR Saab area as the ceiling lights are falling down and it looks like very soon they will all come crashing down onto the poor ol' UR Saab. Would love to see their storage area sometime and see what is not on display!
  • Not worth to visit. There is a river lift for ships nearby which is much better to see and it is for free.
  • Very complete collection of of Saabs from all different eras of Saabs existence. The information offered on some cars could be a bit more, but overall very informative, interesting and also great for people who aren't into Saab or cars. All cars are in mint condition except for the used rally cars of course. I'd definitely recommend visiting if you're in the area. Other technical museums are also located in the same complex.
  • They are not maintaining this place properly. The Ursaab is about to have a sheet of 100 lights fall onto it.
  • Sorry, that I have to say this. But I like the saab cars and this museum is so loveless and run down...sad. Minimum half of the multimedia presentations are out of order and theres only very few and non in depth infos on only some of the cars. So there are cars in the display where theres no information whatsoever. Strange. Theres no visitor concept, no good informative guide, what makes 100 kr entrance fee really a bit steep. Maybe this is ok for hardcore enthusiasts, but the cars would have so much potential and stories to tell.
