What better way to spend a somewhat wet and cold February day in Gothenburg, than pop into a rainforest of all places! This is a fun filled place, ideally suited to a family with children - possibly a little 'light' for adults looking for a more in-depth museum experience. The main feature, albeit one of many 'zones' here, is of... More

Universeum is a cool mixture of science experiments, rainforest, aquarium and has a small section of deadly snakes. There's something for everyone, and is generally packed at the weekends. The science experiments are very active - and great fun for adults as well as kids. The food in the restaurant wasn't great, but the all-vegetarian cafe was okay.

Eat before you go, or picnic, or at a different time than everyone else. The cafe was packed between 12-2 although plenty of tables, just a long queue. Use the lockers because the 'Rain forest experience' is very hot and steamy (28 degrees), but the SEK10 is not a deposit, you don't get it back if you have to enter... More

Universeum has a whole bunch of, what you might call exhibits. There are the exploratoriums about space, technology etc. which are mostly targeted towards kids but where adults can have a good time as well. But the main attractions are the fish tanks and the rainforest. The fish tanks start at the top of the building and models a typical... More

Universeum is a great place for children to learn and experience science. We as parent can also have a great time.

Really well priced. Never seen such a huge collection of aquatic and reptilian animals in one place.

The animal life is spectacular and the way they are experienced is really cool. You can wander through the tropical zone and hang out with the birds and animals. The fish tank..well sharks as well, is a massive glass tank where you can walk through a tunnel of glass and have sharks swim close by. There is a science exploration... More

Here you will find loads to do! Prepare yourself by visiting their webpage in order to know what to expect and find your way. The only small drawback I can see is that it is a lot to take in hence one need several hours to go through it all and the entrance fee is a bit pricey. Apart from... More

Very good museum with a lot to see and do as well. The zoo with all kind of animals are a great treat. Also there is a science part where children can play and build their own toys

This is a really good venue and worth attending on any trip. The rainforest area is great for animals and all the floors are very interesting. The floors get a bit confusing to go through in complete order but doesn't really cause any issues. Would definitely go back again.
