We visited this open air museum on a terribly raining day, but still was a good experience. We crossed more than once the innumerable rooms on the big navy ship (destroyer "Smaland") and couldn't believe how little room there was on the submarine. Unlike many other museums, here it was allowed to touch and turn the levers, great for kids!

Great to go around on ships and an old sub. Lots of up and down climbing and tight quarters. Not recommended for people with problems walking.

Even if you don't like museums this is one to visit...it is very funny to go from one boat to another and see who sailors lived on them. It is fun not only for kids but also grownups!

Really interesting if you like ships. The destroyer tour was comprehesnive and well signed. The submarine was more interesting and very cramped!

After visiting Goteborg I finally visited Maritiman. What a fantastic place! Exploring the boats is great fun for kids old and young. The submarine has quite limited access for less mobile, but if you can make it down the vertical ladder then it is most definitely worth it. Signs throughout are in Swedish, English and German and offer lots of... More

Excellent place to visit, for anyone with even the slightest interest in ships, warfare or the living conditions of the crews. You get almost unlimited access to most areas of the ships, so leave yourself enough time to get around all the ships, but in particular the destroyer and the submarine. In particular the destroyer will take some time to... More

This is a very interesting outdoor museum, some 12 ships are on "display. You can walk around, even you can get on and in. Worth to visit.

I debated about coming here, as I am not at all a nautical person. To my surprise, I actually spent a couple of hours here and found it fascinating seeing the insides of a naval destroyer, a submarine, and other types of ships.
