  • This differs in a good way from too many other local museums. There is a focus to the exhibits that are well presented from the axe shaped gravestones to the medieval past etc  more »
  • Gotland Museum is an absolute must for the history-interested. But it's not as boring as perhaps one and other involuntary fellow followers at the museum think. Gotland's exciting history is shown here in a very captivating and interesting way. And for the youngest there is also a playroom.

  • Interesting exhibitions this summer. The entrance could use a little bit of cleaning up to make it a bit more inviting.
  • If you find yourself with a little time to spare in Visby on the the Swedish island of Gotland then have a look at the art museum. The ground floor is travelling exhibitions which at the moment is on a science fiction theme and the second floor is for children with a good selection to keep most children entertained whilst you explore the permanent collection on the third floor. The museum isn't big but has a nice collection and you can certainly spend an hour or so there.
