About Volvo Museum
Welcome to Volvo Museum where you can follow Volvo's development from the very start in 1927 until today for Volvo's different lines of business: trucks, buses, construction equipment, marine, aero, cars - and other products.

New exhibitions
We have developed all our exhibitions.
The museum also has many exciting exhibits. Besides the first vehicles: ÖV4, the truck LV28 and the bus LV45, you will also find prototypes and much more.

Among the prototypes, there are experimental cars, e g the VESC which preceeded the 240-series, the first electric car, and the concept truck ECT as well as the concept bus ECB. Also Volvo Penta's development of engines, from the early outboards to current high-technology Aquamatic with Duoprop. Among the Volvo Aero exhibits is a radial engine and the first jet engine used in the Royal Swedish Air Force.

You will also find the joint desk of Volvo's founders, Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson, from the pioneer years. One section of the exhibition shows Volvo's safety and environmental thinking.
The film of Volvo's history starts off your exploration of the Volvo museum - well worth your visit!
