A JOURNEY THROUGH VOLVO'S HISTORY Welcome to a world of iconic car models,...

A JOURNEY THROUGH VOLVO'S HISTORY Welcome to a world of iconic car models, groundbreaking innovations and imaginative prototypes. At Volvo Museum you can take a trip through Volvo's history and heritage, all the way from the start in 1927. Our collection encompasses a wide range of passenger cars, buses and heavy trucks as well as marine engines and construction equipment. But you don't have to be a petrolhead (or a dieselhead for that matter) to appreciate Volvo Museum. There's lots for everybody to experience - whether you want to learn about a unique piece of Swedish 20th century history or just want to be nostalgic about the good old times. And the youngest ones will enjoy the childrens' car -- a classic Volvo to play around in.

The day i visited i was the only person there for about 4 hours maybe because this was during working hours. It wasn't too hard to find one bus from Gothenburg central which drops you off in an industrial area but its very well sign posted. If your interested in cars this will devour a few happy hours if you... More

My wife and I spent over five hours in the museum and relived our 42 year love affair with Volvo. In 1974 we drove a 1971 142 across Canada, more than 3000 miles before arriving in Vancouver. Next was a 1973 144 that we kept for 15 years as a daily driver and week-end rally car. A new 1979 244... More

Wonderful museum (with a very helpful staff). I'd planned ca. 1h visit but I enjoyed it for 2,5 h. I deeply recommend to visit this place while being in Gothenborg :) PS> for all Golf lovers: there is a Volvo Cup golf simulator inside :))) it was a beautiful surprise to have an opportunity to hit the volvo ball there....

The Volvo museum consisted of Volvos from different years. In my opinion, the museum could be a bit more interactive. If you are really into cars, surely the museum is interesting. If you are not into cars, it is just bunch of Volvos. The location is a bit inconvenient, and it's a bit of a hassle to get to the... More

The museum is far away from the city area & it is in industrial suburb. You need to plan your commute in advance. Good collection of cars & other equipment manufactured by Volvo since their inception. Especially the concept cars & green bus are worth seeing. Well planned & informative.

Spent a few hours in the museum. It was quiet and entertaining. I enjoyed viewing the cars, big trucks and engines. Particularly it was nice to see a progression of vehicles that were produced over the years.

It's not just the cars that are on show. Interesting to see ones you have seen in the past. There was building work going on so reception/cafe facility not 100% but free coffee to apologise. A well spent SEK100, although when following the signs to the Museum we took a couple of wrong turns as they disappear then reappear. Not... More
