Universeum, the biggest science center in Scandinavia features seven floors of fun! Go to the rain forest and see frogs, cockroaches and an anaconda swamp, or maybe have a look at the section with venomous snakes. There's an aquarium with sharks and rays. In the technology department you can find a crime lab, walk in space and try your weather reporting skills. This is just the tip of the iceberg, as you can easily put aside a whole day for exploring this place. If you find yourself hungry there is a cafe on the ground floor.

Skansen Kronan

The Skansen Krona fortress was built in 1641. The fortress' main purpose was to scare off the Danes, and it was also known as Juteskrämman (the Dane Scare). It was completed in 1695. Skansen Krona is built on a hill and therefore commands a grand view of the central parts of Gothenburg. The tower ornament is in the shape of a crown, hence the name (krona means crown). Today, the fort houses a military museum and is also used as a venue space for parties and weddings.

Röhsska Museet

After visiting Röhsska Museet or the Design Museum, the famous place of design and handcrafts, you might feel inspired to invest in some Swedish design. Inside the museum is a shop where you will find the most famous Swedish and Scandinavian designers' works. The shop has both classic objects and the absolute latest in Swedish design. They also host various exhibitions and lectures to provide visitors with insight into art and design.

Museum of World Cultur

Opened in 2004, the Museum of World Culture is the latest addition to the city's cultural circuit. The beautiful museum even has the honor of receiving the Kasper Sahlin Price Award for architecture. The various temporary exhibitions tell the tale of the amazing cultures of the world. Perfect for children as well as adults, visitors have the opportunity to make a trip around the world all while in the confines of a beautiful space.


Maritima is the considered to be one of the largest ship museums, but it is not as overwhelming as you might expect. It is, nonetheless, very interesting, and the most lively museum in Gothenburg. The museum holds 14 boats, among them a destroyer, a submarine, a towboat, and a lighthouse ship. You can board them all; the submarine is particularly exciting with its narrow passages and small cabins. Check the website to know more.


The Aeromuseum of Gothenburg carefully chronicles the long history of man's pursuit of flight. The museum begins with Icarus and ending with the most advanced rockets and space crafts. Several events take place at this fun, interactive museum so be sure to check out their events calendar at their website. Guided tours and tours in English are also available.
