  • Very nice museum! Fun with a little bit of live animals and interesting exhibitions. There were several kid-friendly activities. Recommend. Costs 40 SEK and gives entry to 5 museums in Gothenburg.

  • There was sufficient English signage to understand the display. Such interesting material about the history of shipping in this town - I hadn't realised about WW11 activities nor about the scale of Sw...  more »
  • Pleasant visit if you do not have anything else for themselves, or if the weather is bad. Admission is cheap and the museum itself is good-will take about 1-2 hours depending on how quick you are. It's easy to get here and is relatively Central.

  • A really nice museum, especially compared to what it used to be a couple of years ago. Provides a good picture of naval history in Gothenburg. Nice and friendly staff, and the cafeteria is good.
  • The exhibition is very nice and offers a comprehensive history of Swedish merchant many activities. The descriptions on the second floor are, unfortunately, only available in Swedish. You need to make sure to take a left when coming up the stairs as there are English language information sheets available there, which explain the exhibits on that floor. In the other areas the descriptions are bilingual in Swedish and English. The ship simulator was closed when I visited, but it looked like a rather sophisticated specimen that may be used in actual nautical training as well. There were lots of activities for children of all ages: a full scale yardarm complete with sail for kids to grow their sea legs, plaster waves to climb on, a moving wheelhouse that simulates a fishing vessel in a storm, plus a number of scheduled, guided activities. The aquarium was also very nice. The university of Gothenburg runs some experiments there. Every Saturday at 1200 is marine petting zoo time. Overall it is a very nice, entertaining venue to visit.
  • Great place to have fun with family or friends! Lots of history of Gothenburg port.
