Volvo Museum

In February 2010 my girlfriend and I were on a roadtrip in Denmark and Sweden. Of course we visited the Volvo Museum in Arendal (near Gothenburg, Sweden). Here are some pictures I took there, unfortunately not all pictures are really good but you’ve got a nice impression of the museum. If you’re in Sweden you really should visit the Volvo Museum, it’s really nice and there is also a nice merchandise-shop which isn’t expensive (the books and goodies are pretty cheap).
