  • Have had several nice days at the maritime with the family. Lots to look at and fun for kids in the workshop and in the play room. A great room to eat your own food.

  • Museum was not very big and part of it was under costruction, but I still really enjoyed it and my young children did as well. Very family friendly museum and it's for free. There is a really nice pla...  read more »
  • A little outside of town, this museum is worth a visit. Definitely take a taxi and then walk back to town around the water side. The exhibitions are very nice and I find it to be a simple pleasant pla...  read more »
  • Sjöhistoriska Museet could be one of the most boring museums I have ever been to in my life. It's free (I see why now) and lacks any passion from the staff (that I met). Getting to Sjöhistoriska Museet is not too hard, either by walking, SL or bike. The location is amazing and the building is fantastic. But once inside, it's too warm, there is no real guide or suggested route or even a over all theme apart from 'Boats'. Most museums like this have a 'Boats of the 17th Century' section and some kind of collection, but not here. I went during the Sailors Tattoo exhibition which was not much better. Just a few walls with some text about tattoo practices for sailors, a few iPads where you could add your own tattoo to a photo and one old tattoo machine. I tried to get interested but the mix of heat and badly presented information just put me off. This museum has some potential but needs a total overhaul in its layout, theme and what the museum curators actually want to achieve with it. Finally, cafe staff could not have cared about customer service less, and I don't think they even made eye contact when I bought Fika for 3 people. Overall, disappointing and such as shame.
  • What's there is fairly interesting but the collection is quite limited.
  • Museum about shipping history of sweden and logistics
  • Great place for short trip with children. But also afults interested in sea things will find a lot of great staff here.
  • Plenty of awesome model ships. The children really enjoyed the playroom (lekrum) in the basement. Worthwhile visit indeed.
