Owner description: Crawl into a real submarine and see exhibitions with focus on technology and seafaring. If you like to experiment, the Ideas Planet is an obvious favourite, and in the Boat Playroom all children are invited to play. The Science and Maritime House is part of the Malmö Museer.

“Fascinating place”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is art of Malmo Musee so see that for more details. Lots to see and do here for everyone. There was an exhibition about astronomy and about discoveries made in Sweden. As someone on dialysis I was fascinated to discover that the first dialysis machine was developed in Lund. Everything is in English too which is great

“Great for the kids......”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Great for adults too. This place kept our kids amused for a few hours while the rain fell outside. We were surprised to see a full submarine to walk/climb through, the third level is all hands on challenges and there's several aircraft inside. Overall great value and more interesting than the average museum.

“Much more to see than we expected.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Really good for children as there is an indoor play area. Lots to see. Inside a submarine, an old air traffic control tower, cars past and present to mention just a few. £4 ish for a ticket that also covered the art/natural history/aquarium (aquarium was the best bit) museum.

“Really interactive”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

As the combined ticket price of 40SEK covers so much - don't miss this if you like the history of transport and travel in Sweden. It's got a lot for the kids with little interactive features and even for bigger kids with planes, boats and cars. The exhibition on life in Sweden is great too - definitely worth a visit

“Welcome aboard!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

My husband and I had visited the Malmöhus Castle and the visit to the Technology and Maritime Museum was included in our ticket. My husband being a great technology and maritime fan we knew we could not miss this museum. We decided to walk the short walk to the museum.

After putting our coats in a locker we proceeded to walk through the museum. In the first room were the cars and trains of a bygone era. There were quite a lot of planes suspended from the ceiling. There were many different types of automobiles, vans and buses, and there was even a steam engine. It was possible to go inside some of the vehicles.

The highlight, I think, must be the tour through the U3 submarine. We did not actually go through the whole sub but went in the front for a look around, came out and went round to the exit for a look at the other side. It was quite fascinating how the men who had been on board had actually lived in such cramped conditions. This sub had seen action during World War II.

After we had toured the submarine we went through a doorway of the exhibition hall and found other displays from the past with furniture and other articles. In the centre and upstairs was a ship. We boarded the ship and promenaded on the decks. There was a figure slumped in a chair in one of the rooms on board. She appeared to have consumed too much alcohol! (Wax figure really).

Back into the room with the cars there was an upstairs area with displays and exhibits and buttons that could be pushed. Somewhere to spend quite a lot of time.

There was a small refreshments area and toilets were available. This museum is worth a visit for the whole family. This museum was not too large so a short visit of about an hour would suffice.
