  • you will have a good view of the sea side along with other surrounding place. Better to visit during afternoon till evening. 
  • This museum could be how well any time but have some left to work on. There is very little information about ships, certainly interesting, history. Fuzzy selection for how to go about making the visit confusing especially on the destroyer Småland. Positive is that you get to go into the submarine and able to experience how crowded it is. Too bad you didn't get to go up on the bridge. I think the visit would be even better of a guide booklet or audio guide.

  • I come regularly to GOT and in general I find the closed door of the Museum... This time luck, the maritime museum was open qlqs days in November, it was great to be able to wander freely in all these boats and a submarine. For lovers of the sea, a must!

  • 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!
