The museum also houses older and contemporary art, both Nordic and international. The collection includes, for example, Monet, Picasso and Rembrandt. The Museum has been awarded three stars in the Michelin Green Guide (Green Guide Scandinavia).
The museum building was created for the international exhibition in Gothenburg 1923 by architect Sigfrid Ericson, celebrating the city's 300th anniversary, and represents the monumental Neo-Classical style in Nordic architecture. It is built of a yellow brick called ”Gothenburg brick” because of the material's frequent use in the city. The museums forms the imposing end of the main street of the city, Kungsportsavenyn.
