  • Nice museum. Takes about an hour. Not as extensive as the BMW museum in Germany, but worth a visit, especially if you have an interest in Volvo history.

  • It is in an odd location far away from city without proper connectivity on weekends. Bus #32 has to be ordered by calling +46 317880789 well in advance on weekends. I wish Volvo (with all their resources and ticket fees) could have done something to arrange for transportation from the city center. Tourists who are unawares with Google maps guidance would wait for hours at the bus stop not knowing that the #32 bus has to be ordered. Other than that, the museum itself is a great experience.
  • I liked my visit to the museum, especially that its easy to find a parking for your car. the staff is very helpful and friendly. On each car you will find a full information in Swedish and English. I will be posting some videos on my YouTube channel , plus 360 photos on the museum's Google Map.
