A beautiful story, Canal exhibition
In our exhibition A beautiful story you find nearly 200 years of canal history, and information about how the engineers' challenges were overcome along the way. We give a glimpse and insight into how the canal has been experienced and aging over the years, from birth to today, and how it is being prepared for the future in the large renovation project Göta Canal 2.0.
Göta Canal 2.0 is the largest renovation project that has been completed since the inauguration of the canal in 1832. It was initiated in 2016 and will last for seven years with extensive renovation and adaptation of large parts of the channel facility. The unique cultural heritage building is secured by the renovation for future generations and for the Göta Canal to continue to be one of Sweden's most visited destinations.
Just outside the exhibition hall there is also our outdoor exhibition where you can walk around and feel about 200 year old locks!
