  • It's a good place to visit over weekends. Not too crowded except the kids play area. You could easily spend 2-3 hours here. If you are planning to visit other museums in Gothenburg then you should also consider getting the membership card.
  • Nice museum with interesting stuff in it. However some of the items are prototype. The model box gives you very nice idea about how things was in the old ages. It worth to visit during rainy day!
