As a Harbour City with a shipbuilding history Gothenburg needs of course a Museum to do with ships. Here you have the possibility to go on to several real ships of different kinds and see close up how it looks inside, how the seamen lived and worked. A great place for kids and adults alike.

Loved this museum - loads of boats to wander round and even a submarine you can explore. Plenty of info, a reasonable price and a decent café too.

Different types of old ships, very interesting to walk through a submarine for example and an old military ship plus several other types of old ships (10 all together).

The destroyer alone took 2 hours for my son to go through (that was with me rushing him towards the end!). The others were a quicker run through, including a submarine. Several boats were inaccessible during our visit (unsure why). Very good value for your money here! There is a also a little cafe to revive yourself if needed!

Very interesting musuem. You get a chance to go through decomissioned warship and a submarine. Need atleast 1-2 hrs to thoroughly go thru all the ships on display.

Lightship to cargo to monitor to submarine to full rigged war-buster - they are all there, side by side, just to board and explore. Climb the narrow deep cylinder into Nordkaparen, take a look at the water canons on firefighter Flodsprutan II, go through all the top technicalities of the 50's on destroyer HMS Småland, the largest museum warship in...

Spent a few hours there this afternoon, was worth the 75 krone entrance fee (for students). There are lots of different boats which are moored to the harbour and you can explore each of them at your own pace. There is a large warship which is by far the most interesting one, much of the boat is explorable and so... More

The museum is easy to find on the waterfront. There are several different boats for you to explore. A new addition to the collection of lightship, coastal steamer, last remaining monitor and HMS Sealand, is a u boat. When we visited ( Easter 2014) it wasn't available to visit as they were waiting for the official opening in May. This... More

10 Mins walk from central station you find dozens of ships which are on display at the harbour area right by the Opera House. This collection is to showcase the maritime history of Goteburg. There are walk on ships and cafe's nearby. Plenty to be occupied with.
