They sell you a season's pass for about 100 kr that allows you to go to this place any time you want during the season. The submarine and the destroyer are amazing. The rest of the ships are worth watching as well. Make sure that you have enough time as it won't take you less than 3 hours to see... More

We were in Gothenberg 2 days after the Maritiman visiting season was over so were not able to enter the boats, but we're able to take plenty of pictures from the pier. There was still a lot to see along the pier.

The remains of the once so proud Royal Swedish Naval fleet have ended up here. It´s an interesting place if you are in for naval ships from the past. It´s worth a few hours though if you like to stroll around and up and down steep ladders.

Truly unforgettable experience. Various ships can be visited, but a submarine wins it all. Veterans who served aboard similar submarines are guides in there, which is a great opportunity to get some first-hand information.

A good selection of ships and a submarine. Enough for about 2 hours. Having said that, as one would expect, the inside of these can be a little cramped so getting around is a little difficult.

All ships are floating, so prepare to be gently rocked by the river. The main attractions must be the Destroyer Smaland and the sub Nordkaparn. Smaland will take its time to search through. More or less all of the ship is accessible and there are red arrows on the floor pointing out the suggested tour to "see all there is... More

There is a lot to see at this attraction from the war ships to the submarines. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this museum. It is a lot larger on the inside than it appears on the outside and involves climbing up and down numerous ladders. We personally spent over one hour on the war ship as there was so... More

This is an outdoor museum of 17 different ships (including a u-boat), although it seems like you cannot visit all of them. I found that the museum lacked in information and the little information that they had (like a video about the museum) was in Swedish. Obviously children will love it as they can visit the inside of many different... More

This is described as the largest, floating exhibition of ships in the world. Not sure if that is true but I can say it is a couple of hours really well spent. I was actually on business and had a couple of hours to spare. Maritiman was approx 15 minutes stroll from my city centre hotel. It is a collection... More
