The Gothenburg Museum of Art houses collections from the 15th century to today. The museum has a Nordic emphasis but the collections also contain older Dutch and French art, including important works by Rembrandt, van Gogh, Monet and Picasso, to name a few.
The Gothenburg Museum of Art has one of the leading collections of Nordic art from the turn of the 19th century. On the top floor visitors find the Fürstenberg Gallery, originally a private collection which was later donated to the museum. The gallery is installed in a setting typical of its period, and here visitors find paintings by such Nordic artists as Edvard Munch, Ernst Josephson, Carl Larsson, P. S Krøyer and Anders Zorn.
In the 1960s a bright new extension was added to the museum, and in January 1996 the museum was provided with a new entry foyer with space for temporary exhibitions, The Hasselblad Center, a bookshop and café.
Unlike other major national art museums, the Gothenburg Museum of Art does not have its origins in royal or princely collections. It is the people of Gothenburg themselves who have created the museum through donations of works and resources.
The Gothenburg Museum of Art has three stars in Michelin Green Guide Scandinavia.
