Yes. However, when I arrived by taxi, Pelle Rudh (R.I.P.) was dismayed that we hadn't called the museum for a ride. We weren't expected, so I hadn't even considered such a thing. He listened for a bit to me explaining to my travelling companion what each of the cars was (including the Padden, the Monster, UrSaab of course, and so on), and then asked if I'd like to see them a bit more closely - down went the velvet ropes (it was very quiet that day, only us in the museum). Somewhere I have a picture of me getting up-close and personal with UrSaab. > I'd like to stay for about a week and are still > undecided whether to base in Gothenburg and catch an internal flight to > Stockholm (my wife's favoured destination) for a couple of days, or the > other way around. My opinion would be, fly in to Stockholm, take care of all that first. Then, train over to Gothenburg, do a short hop up to Trollhatten, back to Gothenburg once you're done there, and take the train up to Oslo. The contrast between the cities is remarkable, and I'll be happy to give you specific suggestions of things to see in Oslo if you do decide to go there. Not all that far from Gothenburg, and worth the trip. If you had more time, I'd suggest the train from Oslo to Bergen, up over the mountans and then down through the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery that I've ever seen.
