We visited this museum during a rainy summer day, surprisingly uncrowded for being the summer vacation time of year. The museum is quality content wise but it's dated and lacking interaction. The aquarium is sub par compared to Universeum. The museum in for an overhaul...More

We took a quick trip through the second floor of the museum and the aquarium. The admission price is 40 kr. and is a ticket to 5 museums in Gothenburg. Good value. There was not much English in the ship section.
