  • Visited here plenty of times and I've so far never been disappointed. It's a great place to bring your family, kids usually love this place (even more than your biggest boat lover). Its very interacti...  more »
  • We went in on the boat took a break talked about never every where inside at the Maritime museum, so we decided to go in and check out all said and done. Maritime Museum was opened in 1987, the same year as my daughter was born, yet had only considered & considered but never arrived there until now then in 2016. It was an experience so high edges at the doors to the various cabins and down into the submarine came not me but my daughter did it but there were crowded on the elbow room. It was very interesting how they had stayed on the boat and how the various rooms looked but could be slippery in places. Really recommended for the slightly more agile person except for the Disabled who find it difficult to move because they are a very inaccessible location and is unfortunately not them. Have a good time and feel free to visit the Maritime Museum.

  • It's a big submarine-Museum Of City Card free entrance. Inside the exposition made living aboard boats. For children there are adventure tour for finding treasures. There is even a cafe where you can enjoy delicious Swedish waffles.

  • Very unique experience for me being from Canada considering I live on the water. The submarine and destroyer are well worth the price of admission. The other boats were ok.
  • Somewhat pricey for one-time visitors, but otherwise cheap as the ticket provided is valid for one year. A unique chance to see submarines, battleships and more from the inside, covering everything from machine rooms to the commander's bridge.
  • Amazing experience at Maritiman, you can discover ships and even enter a real submarine!
  • Very interesting to be able to explore the old ships. The passages are small and there are lots of stairs, so less mobile people won't get as much out of it.
  • They have some really nice old boats that you can visit. The submarine is popular!
