The museum celebrates Karlskrona's past as a shipping port and manufacturing center. It has lots of exhibits on various maritime themes. One I recall as being especially interesting was about how ropes were made. But the exhibits are just that - items placed in a display, with some cursory descriptions. Then, after covering Sweden's part in the nautical era of the 1800's, the museum jumps to 1960's and submarines and the Cold War. That was a bit jarring and I did not get any context as to how Sweden got from there to here, or why. Another reviewer gave a nice review to a coast guard simulator that was not working when we were there (although it was also near closing time). Another mentioned an audio guide but we did not get that either - maybe they were just having an off day.
