Find your way
Världskulturmuseet (the Museum of World Culture) is situated at Södra vägen 54, right next to Universeum (the science museum) at Korsvägen at close to Liseberg (the amusement park).
Korsvägen can be reached by tram routes 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 13 or the red, green and orange express bus routes 49, 50, 52, 91, 157, 513, 761 and 771. You can also reach Korsvägen by the Landvetter Airport Shuttle Bus.
Plan your journey with Västtrafik (public transport)
Please note that all pedestrian crossings from the bus/tram stops to the museum are unsupervised. School children are therefore recommended to use the pedestrian crossing across to Liseberg amusement park, which despite being a slightly longer route saves the children from crossing a busy road where visibility for motorists is poor.
Parking is available on the south side of the museum. Covered car parks can be found at Södra vägen, next to the south entrance of Liseberg Amusement Park, at Åvägen 34 in P-huset Focus, at Sofierogatan below Rondo and finally, at Valhallagatan next to Scandinavium Arena and Valhallabadet (swimming complex). Parking spaces for disabled can be found at the front and rear of the museum.
Free Internet access
Free Wi-Fi Internet access is available to all visitors. Ask at the Information Desk for login details.
There are lockable boxes adjacent to the museum entrance where bags and umbrellas can be stored during your visit free of charge. NB: One SEK 10 coin is needed to lock the box, and will be refunded after use.
Baby prams/pushchairs and changing rooms
Prams and pushchairs are not allowed at floor 3 and 4 due to security reasons. You can leave your pram/pushchair in the cloakroom underneath the stairs and if you need a lock, you can purchase one at the information desk at the entrance. Baby changing facilities are provided in all the toilets (floor 2 and 3).
No pets except for guide dogs are allowed on the museum premises.
