Over the past 15 years, the first-class collection of historic Volvo vehicles has grown steadily and currently encompasses more than 100 cars, trucks, buses and construction vehicles, as well as a large number of marine and aircraft engines, technical components, equipment, display material and much else that has shaped operations in the various Volvo companies. The Volvo Museum is run jointly by AB Volvo and the Volvo Car Corporation, which means that all products carrying Volvo’s logotype, the iron mark, are represented in the museum’s 6,000 square metre exhibition area.
The Volvo Museum Day and the 15th anniversary will be celebrated on Saturday May 8, starting at 10.00 in Arendal:
“This will be a Volvo Day to remember, packed with activities for the entire family. One of the most exciting events is the parade of old and new Volvo vehicles which will start off from the museum at 10.00 in the morning and proceed to the city centre,” says Sten-Åke Lyngstam, Director of the Volvo Museum.
In addition to the museum’s own collection, there will be plenty of other vehicles to see. Many wonderful Volvo cars representing most of the classic models from the various Volvo clubs will be there, and the Commercial Vehicle Rally will finish up at the museum after lunch. There is free entry to the museum the whole day, as well as free parking in the area.
