History and museums
The Volvo Museum is in Gothenburg, Sweden. It covers the development of Sweden's leading vehicle manufacturer Volvo, from the first ÖV 4 to the current cars, trucks, buses and other products. The museum also contains many other exhibits, including Gabrielsson’s and Larson’s joint desk from the pioneering years. There are also displays of Volvo Aero and Volvo Penta products.
The museum is open daily except Mondays and public Swedish holidays. It is located in the Arendal area on the island Hisingen at the sea, about 10 km west of Gothenburg city centre. Follow road 155 when driving. A map is probably needed, which can be found through the coordinate link on the right top of this page. The nearest bus stop is called Arendal Skans.

Cruise ships which are too tall to go under the Älvsborg Bridge (45 metres (148 ft) allowed) berch nearby, which accounts for a fairly large share of the visitors.
