While I'm generally not a huge fan of museums (from what I remember being dragged around them as a kid), I will try to write my review disregarding that fact. First, I should mention that anyone below the age of 25 has free entry into the museum. This museum has 6 stories. The floors are kind of strangely arranged, but... More

This art museum has some good examples of the famous artists you've heard of, but the real gem is discovering the Swedish and Nordic artists that you didn't. There is also the Hassleblad Center for photography that seems to have a rotating exhibition from intriguing photography artists. 'Should also mention that there is a cool café and bar the museum....

The entrance fee is cheap, and also grants free entrance to a lot of other museums in town. Considering that in combination with the very central location it would be unwise not to visit this sight unless you don't like art.

While we'd been there the very nice events were just possible to see. As we'd been there in Janury there were no a lot of visitors and it's great!

A lot of paintings and sculptures some interesting some less. A few big names, among others, Picasso. Gallery as other ones, actually nothing special for me. But my niece was delighted. A lot of works especially those related to the historical events she studied carefuly at the same time searching for information on the Internet. Impressing. We spent a few... More

The Göteborg museum of fine art lies in the hart of the city and exhibits both contemporary and historic art. It also houses the Hasselblad Center which does great photo shows. Currently they have a Stan Douglas exhibition which on its own is worth the visit.

One of the best places to go as a tourist when it's raining outside. Lovely exhibits, lots of information, kept very clean. Highly recommend.

We visited on a rainy day. Good locker system to put your bags and valuables in. Found it strange that no admission prices on display (even the website had none). Only one pay booth open and when we left the queue snaked for quite a length. Having said that good place to spend 2 to 3 hours in with plenty... More
