The entrance for people under 25 years is free. I learnt a lot about Gotheburgs history. It's the perfect program for a day of bad weather.

My family and I visited the City Museum since it is a must do in Goteborg. There, you can learn the history of the early Norsemen, learn the history of Swedish culture and learn about the 400 years of Goteborg! You can easily spend many hours walking from room to room looking at all of the exhibits and reading about their contents.

The only negative experience we had is that the descriptions are written on frosted glass. In English, the font color makes the words disappear when you are trying to read what is on display (this is very noticeable in the early Norse rooms). If the Museum management simply changed the font color to something darker, it would resolve this issue right away.

Wasn't sure what to expect of this museum but was really impressed by how large it is and how in depth it goes into each time period. The special 'Birth of Gothenburg' exhibition was really well presented and immersive. The museum was a little tricky to navigate,a little more signage might be helpful. The music exhibition on the top floor was also well done even if I didn't know a lot of the acts displayed. Overall a great collection and spent a lot longer here than I would have thought.

I knew very little about the history of the city until I spent a pleasant 1 1/2 hours at this small museum. The signage is in English as well as Swedish, and the artifacts are well displayed. The admission fee provides a ticket that is good for 3 days at 4 or 5 museums in the city. If you visit ONE of them early in your stay, you might have time to take advantage of more of them without paying an extra fee.

The museum was ok, a typical museum. I wanted to visit to see the old Viking ship, which is the only one in sweden. This was really interesting. I would visit again just for the ship.
