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

If you want to have a look at how naval ships and a submarine look like, come to Maritiman. I used my Gothenburg card to get in, but even with paying for this specific attraction it's well worth visiting because you have so many ships that are included in the price. I was also lucky to arrive when a guided... More

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.

Honestly nothing special, boring and costly . The vessel are nothing special not any history , I recommend the Naval museum instead , where you can see the history have experience with ship simulator .

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.
