The City Museum tells the story of Gothenburg from ancient times up until today. Explore the exciting pre-history, the 19th century life, the development of the modern industrial Gothenburg and the only exhibited Viking ship in Sweden, Äskekärrsskeppet.
The museum is located in the historic East India Company building from the 18th century. Here you can study the remains of how people lived in this part of Sweden 12,000 years ago and see why Gothenburg is called the Swedish Amsterdam. You also find temporary exhibitions about current topics, guided tours, city walks and much more. The museum has a whole new play room – the Children’s Museum for kids of all ages, a shop, café and restaurant.
