Introduction to the Gothenburg Museum of Art

Welcome to an introduction to the Gothenburg Museum of Art in the Fürstenberg Gallery, one of the museum’s most appreciated exhibitions. As a center for industry, trade, and entrepreneurship, Gothenburg has since the 19th century been the home to several wealthy individuals with strong social and cultural interests, similar to the Fürstenbergs. This resulted in a culture of donations that has made the museum and its esteemed collection possible. During the introduction, you will get a taste of the museum’s more than hundred-year history and insight into what is currently exhibited in the museum’s halls.

No pre-registration is required. The introduction is included in the entrance fee.

Wednesdays 14.30–14.45 (12 June to 14 August)
Saturdays 13.30–13.45 (1 June to 31 August)


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!

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.
