The real attraction for me was the gallery's collection of Nordic painters. Goteborgs konstmuseum has possibly the best collection of Nordic painters in the whole of Sweden.

At the Göteborg Art Museum you could really feel the art from different centuries communicate with eachother. Great work of mixing old and new pieces from the collection and giving the exhibition such an interesting twist!

Visiting the Gothenburg Museum of Art was one of the highlights of my stay in the city.
Visitor From TripAdvidsor
I took a walk through Gothenburg and discovered the museum of art. At the end my visit took 2 hours longer than I planned to spend in the city, because I really enjoyed exploring all the artworks and the temporary exhibition in this nice building. As a student the entry was free! :-)

The museum houses art (mainly paintings) from the last 500 years or so. We were pleased to see such a wide-range of artists' work displayed - both those from Scandinavia but also those more well-known to us such as Picasso, Munch, Van Gogh, Kandinsky and Monet.
Introduction to the museum’s collection
– Nordic turn-of-the-century art
Our museum’s hosts have a great interest in art which they want to share. Twice a day, during the summer months, our hosts are going to give an introduction to our permanent artworks within the Fürstenberg Gallery. Here you can find an excellent selection of Nordic paintings and sculptures from the late 19th to early 20th century. The artworks are shown in a domestic environment, similar to the home of Gothenburg collectors and patrons of the arts Göthilda and Pontus Fürstenberg. This was a time when young artists changed and challenged the arts in a profound fashion. Discover what was deemed current and extraordinary about artists like Carl Larsson, Anders Zorn, Bruno Liljefors and Hanna Pauli and examine sculptures that symbolize modern inventions, for example the camera and the telephone. You are always welcome to ask our hosts for suggestions and information regarding you visit.
Assembly will be on the 6th floor, inside the Fürstenberg Gallery, next to the elevator. Every Tuesday-Sunday (June 25-September 1) at 12-12.15 (in Swedish) and 15-15.15 (in English).
No reservation is required, and the introduction is included in the entrance fee. If you come across one of our hosts in the museum or at the reception at other times, we will gladly answer any questions and inquiries.
Book a Private Guided Tour
