Information about our renovation
In November 2019 we started a project to renovate och renew some of our permanent exhibitions.
The Gothenburg Museum of Natural History was founded in 1833. The museum moved from the East India building to a new, purpose-built location in Slottsskogen in 1923, where it was extended in 1981. Parts of the permanent exhibitions have not been renovated for many years, but now it is time! The renovation is aimed to better tell the fascinating stories our collections hold.
The renovations started in the Whale Hall. The upper floor closed in November 2019, and the rest of the hall will close on March 2nd 2020. The new and improved Whale Hall will open in 2021.
The Museum will be open to the public during the renovation period, but certain rooms will be closed and the renovation can cause noise or smells. When we close something we will post the information here and on our Facebook page.
