Welcome to Museum of Gothenburg!

Museum of Gothenborg tells the story of Gothen­burg and its people from antiquity to the present day, temporary exhibitions, guided tours, city walks and all kinds of activities. The museum has a shop and café, and a new playroom for children.

You find us in the center of Göteborg, located in the magnificent Swedish East India Companys vast office and warehouse building, built during the mid-18th century.The museum has permanent exhibitions telling the story of Göteborg and covering over 12.000 years of history.  Among all you can see “the Äskekärrsskeppet”, the only ship from the Viking era on display in Sweden. It is also the only Viking ship in the world with runic inscriptions. 

We also hosts several temporary exhibitions.

We offer a wide range of activities to suit all ages, such as seminars, guided tours, city walks and activities for children. A special playroom is available for the young called The Children’s Museum.

The Faktarum offers access to the museum's large library and archives, a vast source of information about the history of Göteborg and Western Sweden.
