Visitor From Tripadvisor
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!

Highly recommended (three stars). The museum is exceptional and worth a trip.

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! :-)
Visitor From TripAdvidsor
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.
The museum is open
Updated 2021-04-30. The information will be continuously updated.
The museum is open to the public. We follow the authorities recommendations closely and have made a number of changes to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff.
If you are symptom-free, you are welcome to visit the museum. Please take extra care regarding hand hygiene and keep a safe distance to other visitors. If you are not feeling well, we advise you to postpone your visit, due to the ongoing spread of the Corona virus. The decision can be changed based on the current situation and restrictions.
Limited access to the museum
We limit the number of simultaneous visitors to the museum to a maximum of 150 people to avoid crowding and to ensure that our visitors can keep a safe distance. We have also introduced restrictions per room/exhibition. This means that you might be asked to wait for a while before you can enter the museum. Please visit the museum on your own or in a small group (maximum group size 8). Weekdays are normally less busy compared to the weekends.
Booking and payment
We are currently not able to offer pre-booking. As part of the security measures, our cash registers are now cash-free. It is possible to pay by card or Swish.
You are welcome to visit the museum’s exhibitions. All gallerys and temporary exhibitions are open to the public. Remember to keep a safe distance to other visitors.
Due to the current situation, the museum has decided to switch to digital programme activities. Our guided tours are cancelled until further notice.
Visit the Museum digitally
Under “Digiseum” on the website, we have collected digital resources in the form of exhibitions, filmed introductions, highlights from the collections, engaging stories and tips on how experience the museum from home. We regularly add new and exciting content and we highly recommend a visit – 24 hours a day, from mobile, tablet or computer.
Other measures to reduce risk
We have introduced extra cleaning routines to reduce the risk of disease. We also encourage our visitors to take extra care with hand hygiene and to keep a safe distance to other visitors. We take regular rounds in the museum to ensure not too many people are occupying the same room at the same time. For visitors, we offer hand sanitizer. We have installed plexiglass in front of the counter, as well as floor markings to ensure that the appropriate distance is kept. To help keep a distance at the lockers, we have locked every other cabinet.
