My son and I had a great couple of hours exploring the destroyer and submarine (and other ships). Be warned though, parts may not appeal to those who don't like close confines. We also managed to find ourselves going the wrong way along the marked out route - we have noticed that the Swedes don't seem great at providing user friendly information. A really interesting place to go though.

It's not everyday you can see inside old submarine, and see how tiny & low the spaces there. Good to entertain kids & "big" kid like my husband as well^_^ but it just not for me.

They have left the destroyer and the submarine pretty much untouched since decommissioning. Lots of steep ladders and small bulkheads to get through. You can do way down into the engine room and magazines as well as up to the bridge in the destroyer. Not for someone with limited mobility/agility. Outstanding for kids.

The museum has many different ships, each with a different history and purpose. It was very fun climbing up and down the different levels of the destroyer, Småland, and seeing the different rooms and artillery. There are also fireboats,lightboats, moniters and many other ships. The staff was very informative and even gave us a tour of the place (in english) though we were the only ones there.

This museum is situated down at the city harbour - close to the Operahouse (GöteborgsOperan) - and here you can take a closer look at submarines, warships and more.
