One of the best places to go as a tourist when it's raining outside. Lovely exhibits, lots of information, kept very clean. Highly recommend.

We visited on a rainy day. Good locker system to put your bags and valuables in. Found it strange that no admission prices on display (even the website had none). Only one pay booth open and when we left the queue snaked for quite a length. Having said that good place to spend 2 to 3 hours in with plenty... More

Interesting permanent collection (interesting Nordics of all schools, and a small treasure trove of Picasso stood out), and very well-curated feature exhibitions. The Sculpture Hall is awesome. One local artist, Kent Lindfors, I 'fell for' big-time, and shall now follow whenever possible.

Great collection of Scandinavian Art and a lot more including a few impressionists and a lot of modern art. Worth checking out if you have a long weekend in Gothenburg as there are several floors to explore and the entry fee is fairly cheap.

This amazing gallery is one of 5 you can visit on a 40 SEK ticket.The ticket is valid for a year. The Kent Lindfors exhibition currently on was amazing. His paintings are big and sometimes complex. I found myself focusing on small sections of the river paintings and discovering all sorts of pictures of the landscape the river passed through.... More

I did not know much about this Museum in advance - a colleague wanted to see a photography exhibit on the ground floor (which seemed to be free of charge) and was slightly disappointed by its small size. We ended up paying the full entry (moderate pricing - ca. 8 EUR), and had a great time. On the ground floor,... More

This museum blew my mind away though, such a beautifully curated museum with a great exhibition; The eighteenth Century mirrored by the present - Unbounded! Such an inspiration and real energy boost! Some of the largest Anders Zorn & Carl Larsson's we have and a pretty impressive collection of Chagall and Picasso too. You might get inspired by my pictures,... More

We came here because it was included in the Gothenburg city card. It was worth it to spend a few hours in here to get a little touch of Scandinavian art. If you like art museums you should come to this one. I gave it a 4 because I don't feel is a MUST during a visit to the city.... More

Good cross section of general art from the old masters to modern sculpture. For someone like myself with an interest but no real knowledge of art it was an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours just wandering around.
