  • Very interesting and informative site. Also for smaller children. It was fun to explore all the ships and climb down into the submarine. Perfect destination if you're going to be a couple of days in Gothenburg. Nice and quick staff who work on the associated eatery. Good parking facilities nearby. We were very pleased with the visit there.

  • It is not often that we can come and meet particular military ships or a submarine. In this open-air museum we can visit several ships. Excellent program for children and adults. One more great idea.

  • The Museum is completely outdoors and consists of many different ships that can be visited. Here 3 hours can easily spend. Small downside: Unfortunately, many information only in Swedish is - as in many museums in Sweden -. However, there is an app with audio-guide in German and English, which you can listen to a guide. Suitable for small children may be limited because many stairs and steps up and down across from the ships.

  • Bring your kids - and yourself! Interesting out of seeing how marine vessels look like but also GREAT fun, no matter what age! :)
  • Interesting combination of several ships which you can explore, e.g. submarine, lighthouse ship. The audio guide available as an app is quite good (used for German). Definitely worth a visit.
  • Great place for anyone who is slightly interested in ships or submarines or whoever wants to experience how small and dense it is inside in one of either. Not recommended for people with disabilities or who can not climb well as there is a lot of stairs and ladders to climb.
  • Had a great time, however, more informative panels are welcome. The submarine is off limits unfortunately.
  • Amazing museum where you can see everything of a destroyer and even more better: a sub-marine! A must do!
