Perfect for children!

With a huge number of stuffed animals, I've seen children getting enchanted, being also a big opportunity to instigate their curiosity!

The museum is beautifully situated in one edge of the nice Slottsskogen park. Some parts feel pretty old, but that is quite OK for a museum. It contains anything from the whale to the small creatures, even if the museum is not exactly the biggest I have seen.

This was an excellent place to spend a few hours with the children. The old exhibits mixed with new work very well and are a reminder to us all of the amazing human efforts from previous centuries to educate us all on natural history. Al the family loved it!

Having visited the Natural History Museums in London and New York I was looking forward to visiting this one while in Gothenburg, but not expecting as much as I had seen in the other two. I was pleasantly surprised by just how many exhibits this museum does have. The highlights of the museum must surely be the mammals section upstairs,... More

I visited this museum as suggested by the Goteburg City Card which provided free entry. The museum has a large selection of stuffed animals (not sure if real or not) and plenty of exhibits. I was most impressed by the large elephant in the middle of one room which towered above everything else. I think the museum could do with... More

I've seen better natural history museum, but this one's good too. Not very big, enough for a couple of hours. The big blue Wales are real wow! The birds salon has very beautiful kinds. Some sculptures that show real size of big animals were nice. I went there with my mother and both enjoyed it. There are lockers to put... More
