Exactly what I expected from a natural history museum. It had a wide selection of stuffed animals, it takes just over an hour to walk round and see everything.

I’ll start by saying that this museum is free which is a big plus when you travel with three children. We enjoyed each floor. I liked that it was organized in rows and not chaotic. We came at the opening to avoid the crowd. The...More

Now I don’t want some animal rights protester jumping down my throat for appreciating nature behind glass in a controlled environment that allows me to learn. These animals don’t have rights, they’re dead. Many of them actually had their story too, for example Simba was...More

All in all the muesum has a lot of different animals to see, but a few of them are prepared in a way that they don't look real or even how this animal would look like. Apart from that only a very few things have...More

My fiancé and I visited the Natural History Museum of Gothenburg on our recent trip. The collection of taxidermy birds, fish and mammals to see was huge, the biggest collection I have seen by far. Most of the taxidermy was incredibly realistic too, but unfortunately...More

On first impressions the museum seems very modern as you walk into the entrance wing with the cafe and gift shop. However as you enter into the older building the age of the collection starts to show. The collection itself is diverse and well presented...More
