This is a great place for a Sunday afternoon after a long walk around the city. Young and old alike can find an interest. History through the decades going back 11000 years.

The ticket was really not expensive and the shop had some excellent coffee beans (sweets) for which I came back several times! I liked the museum, it had some very interesting sections.

The museum exhibits well the history of the city of Gothenburg and also to some extent history of Sweden. This would be a good museum to visit with children - there are rooms where you can dress up in old clothes etc. The navigation around...More

I spent 2 to 3 hours, but the museum is broken up into different stages so if something doesn’t interest you you can move on to something else.
