I just stumbled upon this as I was walking along the side of the river. A neat little open air museum at the harbour. Didn't go onto any of the boats as I hadn't intended on visiting but I stopped and read the information (which was also in English) besides the exhibits that were next to the walkway. Worth a...

Be prepared for lots of climbing ladders when you visit this museum. The exhibits are all real ships and have lots of ladders between the decks. When we visited some of the smaller ships were not there but there was enough to see. It took 3 hours to look at what was on offer and we could have spent longer.... More

Had this one in my sights for a while and the opportunity came up, there's a few smaller vessels which you get a more orless full run of,but the set pieces are the submarine and destroyer. The sub as a coastal patrol boat not very large but still afloat and with full access all the detail left aboard and a... More

They have a Monitor. The Sölve, built in 1875 and on the same lines as the Ironclads Monitor and the CSS Virginia. These ships changed the face of naval warfare in the American Civil War. Stepping aboard you are aware of the shallow draft. It is dark and cramped. It moves with the swell. Try and imagine what it would... More

Even if you're not into destroyers and submarines, you can't fail to be captivated by this museum experience on Gothenburg's harbour front. You can explore the destroyer Smäland, the old lightship Fladen (pre-dating the modern lighthouse!) and, scariest of all, the submarine Nordkaparen. Your route is clearly signposted with red arrows and although there are guided tours available your best... More

It was a grey and overcast day, so what better than to spend it 'indoors' exploring engine rooms and submarines! The variety of vessels your pass gives you access to is, I think, unrivalled - I've been in similar places in San Francisco, London and Perth, but this is better! I had an 8 yo with me, so it was...

The museum is very interesting in that all the exhibits are real floating ships and a submarine. Guided pathways lead you around, and you need to be fairly fit to go up and down all of the ladders,and steep stairs. Don't go in the submarine if you are claustrophobic, but if you are not then don't miss it, it is... More

We went to the Maritiman boat museum not expecting much, but we were both amazed. Floating in the harbour were about 10 to 20 boats and a submarine that you could walk round and in. They had red arrows painted on the floor and walls of the ships so you could not get lost. It was a bit of a... More

Great place to explore a floating museum. Access was free using the 'Goteburg City Card' and was well worth the experience. The museum is a collection of vessels linked together on the water. You get to wander around each vessel checking out every nook and cranny and it's an interesting walk about. The larger military ship was worth a good... More
