Well what can I say, nothing on display at the moment, some models here and there. The best thing was that it's free and the toilets were clean.

This museum has wonderful ship models from throughout Sweden's maritime past, but there isn't much else. The Sex and the Sea exhibit was there when I visited, and I wasn't sure what was going on. That exhibit seemed poorly designed and lacking in any sort of informative information, however that could have been because I don't understand much Swedish. Aside... More

This museum is typical of maritime museums with lots of fantastic models of boats. This part was good and as ever the boats were fascinating. Some are quite historic. However the rest of the exhibits were poorly interpreted aNd this detracted from the visit. There was an exhibit called 'sex and the sea'. The artists notes said something along the... More

One of many worth visiting the museums on Djurgården, Finely exposed model building that gives some background on Swedish maritime through the ages.Playroom for children and a cafe on site.Free entrance for travel funds are becoming strained

Arrestingly beautiful but At nearly 10GBP entrance price I thought this museum was expensive. outside exhibits of a famous ice breaker and a former lightship are free and totally fascinating. Good explanations are provided in English.

This was a surprise find whilst walking back from the Vasa museum - the two ships which you can go round free are really interesting (a lighthouse ship and an old ice breaker). The ice breaker is particulrly fun if you are a 9 year old boy as there are loads of ladders to go up and down in the... More

Thus small 2 storey museum set between the ferry and Vassa museum deserves to be visited. Really lovely volunteers, a wide selection of beautifully crafted small boats, including leaders in their field, eg 1st steam driven one, one that was rowed across the Atlantic, nearby are the icebreaker and lighthouse ship you can visit too.

There is the maritime museum a short distance from the main city and in addition there are several ships near the Vasa Museum you can go over plus a boat hall. All are free entry. We were unable to do the museum building but had an absolutely enjoyable time walking freely around Sweden's first icebreaker Sankt Erik and a new... More

Interesting for children and adults. It's near other museums, so that you can visit for a while and then go to other museums, if you'd like to. You don't have to be a boat/ship fanatic to enjoy this museum. The entrance is free! The restaurant is nice and similar to restaurants in other museums in Stockholm.

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighborhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
