Urbanum is a meeting place for anyone who wants to take a fresh look at the city. Join us on a journey which starts before Gothenburg even existed. Meet today’s enthusiasts, see historic films and hang out in our cosy reading corner.
In the Museum's permanent exhibitions, you can explore the history of Gothenburg. Hear the stories about the Viking Gods and discover the rich images from the Middle ages. You can see how the city has developed from a fortified town in the 17th century to the present, through the new ideas of the 18th century who changed the city.
During 12,000 years, there have been people in the western Swedish environment. How did people live so long ago, and what traces are left? Meet the Rolfsåkers-man from the stone age and see objects unearthed from this period.
