The place to be if you love vintage Swedish cars.
A 1956 Volvo P1900.
The symbol of Swedish practicality, the Volvo, has its own museum in Gothenburg.
The founders of the Volvo Museum assert that you need not be a “petrolhead” to enjoy the exhibits. The Volvo and its history lend a unique lens to 20th century Swedish history at large.
The brand debuted in 1927 in Gothenburg and was the first Swedish car. As personal automobiles grew popular worldwide in the ’30s, Volvo made other vehicles including buses, trucks, construction equipment, marine engines, and airplanes. Artifacts of note in the collection include the world’s fastest hybrid truck, a life-sized Volvo SUV made from LEGO bricks, as well as various vintage models hard to find elsewhere.
