Before your visit
You can find most of the information you need to prepare for your visit on our website. Please take a look there before you visit us. Here’s some practical information.

How to reach us
The Alfie Atkins Cultural Centre (Alfons Åbergs Kulturhus) is located at Slussgatan 1. Most buses, trams and trains stop at Drottningtorget/Centralstationen (Central Station). Get off there and walk to the Garden Society of Gothenburg (Trädgårdsföreningen). Alfie Atkins’ world is waiting for you in the first building to the right of the entrance to the Garden Society of Gothenburg. View on map.

Booking and payment
We only accept prebooked visits from nurseries and schools. Please note! We are cash-free. You can pay by invoice, or by card or Swish. We no longer accept cash, for your and our safety. The discounted admission fee for schools is SEK 45 per person. The same admission fee applies to children, teachers or other accompanying adults. All programme activities are included in the admission fee.

Opening hours
Check our website for correct information about our opening hours. In high season from early July to mid-August, we are open until 17:00. The only days we close are Midsummer Eve and 24-26 December.

Hungry visitors will find tasty options such as organic pancakes, yoghurt and fruit at Malcolm’s Café. If you’ve brought a packed lunch, you can eat it on the upper floor (only school classes may eat their packed lunch inside the building). You can also eat your packed lunch outside in the Garden Society park and then come back in again afterwards. When the weather’s nice, our lovely terrace is also open.

Keeping things orderly…

  • As a teacher bringing your class, you are responsible for ensuring that your students behave in an orderly manner. Please prepare your students by explaining what is expected of them when visiting the Alfie Atkins Cultural Centre.
  • Bear in mind that you’re visiting Alfie in his own home, so it’s just like going to anybody’s home. Show respect for other visitors, especially the youngest ones. Some of your students might have younger siblings and will know about showing consideration for younger children.
  • Visitors should walk instead of running and avoid chasing or pushing each other. Just like at school, it’s important to keep noise levels down for everybody’s comfort. Everyone should talk instead of shouting.

Programme activities
All programme activities are included in the admission fee, and every day we offer two theatre shows and other fun programme activities. No prior booking is required. You can see each day’s activities in the programme calendar on our website. We regularly have performances with mime or sign language. During theme weeks in autumn and spring, we present educational projects such as Chemistry with Alfie Atkins. These projects require prior booking

The building has a lift so you can visit the two floors, and of course we have accessible toilets. A children’s wheelchair is also available for visitors to borrow. For more information about our activities and accessibility, visit the Accessibility Database.
