Museum of World Culture
Just a few blocks from the Gothenburg Museum of Art you will find the Museum of World Culture, which has activities for the whole family. The Museum of World Culture aims to be a forum for discussion and reflection, where many different voices can be heard, and where controversial and potentially conflicted issues can be addressed. It is a place where people can feel at home across boundaries.
At Korsvägen, just a few blocks away from the Gothenburg Museum of Art, you will find Universeum. Here you will find a mix of animals and nature, new technology and exciting experiments. Go along on a safari through the Rainforest, dive down below the surface in the Aquarium Hall, or put your body and mind to the test in the Health section. Universeum invites you to an unforgettable adventure.
From the Gothenburg Museum of Art you look out over Kungsportsavenyn – perhaps the most fabled address in Gothenburg. Avenyn ("the Avenue"), as it is called colloquially, stretches from Kungsportsplatsen up towards another Gothenburg landmark, namely Götaplatsen, featuring Carl Milles’ fountain Poseidon. Along Avenyn there are countless stores, restaurants, and cafés to explore.
On the heights behind the Gothenburg Museum of Art lie the Lorensberg villas, which are considered to be of interest from the perspective of architecture history. The villas were built during the years 1913–25, primarily in the style of national romanticism, but you will also come across the classicism of the 1920s.
