Very interesting venue for people interested in sea historical ship models and parts of. Also covers areas of Swedish East India Company. Food could be better, but is rather cheap tough. Free entry - at least during winter times - but sponsoring is much appreciated

Well set out with nice displays but rather thin on actual information. It seems popular with families with children and I got the impression that many of the texts that accompanied exhibits were pitched at a young teenage audience rather than adults. Great set of model ships on the first floor. It's a short way out of the town centre... More

We went to the Maritime museum with our family and were really satisfied for the visit. It is free to visit. The atmosphere is chill and relaxing, not too much people or hassle. It is kind of old school high quality place to relax and find information about the maritime life past and present.

Museum was not very big and part of it was under costruction, but I still really enjoyed it and my young children did as well. Very family friendly museum and it's for free. There is a really nice playroom in the basement as well as a room for nursing and for having a picnic. There is a bistro too in... More

A little outside of town, this museum is worth a visit. Definitely take a taxi and then walk back to town around the water side. The exhibitions are very nice and I find it to be a simple pleasant place to visit. I am glad we ventured there. You should too!

Free entry to a small selection of old ships was a sure bonus in a very expensive city. The museum had few visitors which meant it was possible to tour the icebreaker and the lightship in relative peace. An excellent place to visit if you are interested in maritime history. It is possible to climb 33 steps to reach the... More

We didn't manage to visit the main museum, but we found the icebreaker "sankt Erik" and the lighthouse ship behind Vasa museum. The admission is free, and at 3pm you can join guided tour in English. There were no other visitors, so we could follow our guide in the engine rooms without any problems :) She told us a lot... More

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.

Impressive : 1. Aplenty activities for kids and each one ensures that kids will learn something. This is a heartening practice :) e.g: a. Word and pictorial puzzles having the polar region terms like glacier, polar bear etc. b. The models of the crewman's cabin, working models of the boat's engines, types of boats c. In the basement, there are... More
