  • A very interesting museum if you are interested in as well as marine-marine and boats in General. Often special exhibitions for children and workshops with various forms of model building.

  • We have eaten a delicious crab bread on the deck of the former icebreaker and current Museum ship "Sankt Erik" after the visit to the Vasa Museum and had something to drink. It was a pleasant break with sea feeling when the sun shines.

  • The favorable location, combined with an exciting content make the maritime to an interesting museum. It is clean and functional rooms. If you like the maritime history, it is a must to visit here. There is a nice restaurant adjacent. Well worth a visit.

  • Interesting exhibits, but boy the museum missed a big one. There is nothing I could find on the Kalmar Nickle, a ship in Sweden's navy that made at least four trip to America in the 1640-50 period. Sweden established a settlement in Wilmington Deware USA. Though the settlement was eventually taken over by the Dutch and English, the Wilmington has offen been visited by the Royal Family. Since my great grandfather, many times removed was on those a voyages, I was surprised there was no mention of the ship or the expeditions.
  • If you're around, take a look inside, they have a little playground with boats etc, liked by kids around 3y. You should be somehow interested in boats though :)
  • I usually don't enjoy museums that much but ships are cool. I liked this one!
  • A fascinating experience. Well worth a walk from the centre.
  • 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.
