While we'd been there the very nice events were just possible to see. As we'd been there in Janury there were no a lot of visitors and it's great!

A lot of paintings and sculptures some interesting some less. A few big names, among others, Picasso. Gallery as other ones, actually nothing special for me. But my niece was delighted. A lot of works especially those related to the historical events she studied carefuly at the same time searching for information on the Internet. Impressing. We spent a few... More

The Göteborg museum of fine art lies in the hart of the city and exhibits both contemporary and historic art. It also houses the Hasselblad Center which does great photo shows. Currently they have a Stan Douglas exhibition which on its own is worth the visit.

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
