The prehistoric and viking era sections of the museum were great. There were many great artifacts to look at and read about. The section dedicated to the establishment of Gothenburg was very enlightening. The remainder of the museum was a bit random and hard to get through.

Pretty cool but we didn't really understand the thread of the museum so everything seemed a bit random. I recommend asking for advice at reception on where to start!

A great place to spend a few hours. There are exhibits that are interesting to kids, too, not just adults.

Good museum, interesting for overseas visitors like myself as well as locals. I'm surprised there weren't more people there. Perhaps the admission fee puts people off.

Situated near to central station.This musuem was fine to me. It was not tha exciting for me.May be because this is not my type of musuem. You can try it if you are interested in the history of Gothernburg.

Very nice museum in Gothenburg about the history of the city and of Sweden in general. They also have a big area particularly about the Viking era which we really enjoyed. The museum is quite big so expect to be spending some time here if you want to see everything. Definitely recommend going here!

Great exhibitions on the history of the city as well as the Viking era throughout Scandinavia. It was free for people under 25 and you can easily spend two hours here to see all the exhibits. Surprisingly un-busy for a Saturday.

Nice and quiet as a musem should be. However I found the viking era exhibits to be a bit on the weak side when compared with renaissance era. Makes sense? No not for me.

A nice museum in a historic building. Always has some nice exhibitions. And a nice café with great kladdkaka with cream that you can eat on the street which is highly recommended. Also has an inner garden which is really nice to spend time in.
