for families

Are you free with children or grandchildren and want to do something together? There is a lot of fun to be had and discovered at the Museum of Gothenburg. Here, children and their adults can walk around the house and discover 400 years of dramatic history together. Or why not participate in various activities such as family Sundays, family tours and creative workshops. Everyone under the age of 20 has free entry.
