Maritiman keeps your curiosity afloat with a collection of 15 moored museum boats. Experience life at sea without ever leaving the harbor aboard the largest warship in Scandinavia, the Jagaren Småland destroyer. Climb ladders through cargo ships, lightships, a port ferry, and tow boats on this floating maritime museum. Go below the water to explore the submarine HMS Nordkaparan. The site offers an app and audio guide for download, or you can opt for a guided tour given by a former veteran. Stop by the cafe for traditional Swedish waffles with whipped cream and jam to end your authentic maritime experience.

  • Spent three hours there and it was very interesting. Some passages may be difficult to walk, especially in the submarine and in the bottom of the destroyer.. but you can also skip these.
  • Ok museum if you are interested in boats. My kids liked it but quickly ran through all of it in less than an hour.
  • Real fun over dismissed boats and submarine. It isn't fancy, but it's great fun for children.
  • Cool river front with lots of different small ships and frigates in row.
  • It's a really cool place, you can even get into a submarine:)
