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

A real gem of the Swedish Army. You may need about 3 hours to visit all the ships and also a submarine. They also offer a lot of activities for children and a guidad tour in English.

I was looking forward to visit Göteborg floating maritime museum and I wasn't disappointed. While I 'm more interested on military vessels, the current collection shows a great balance between the sexier naval vessels and the civilian ships which keep the city's marine history alive. All the ships are well maintained and the routes are clear and easy to follow.... More

Some of the maritime museums we have been too are all exhibition based with perhaps the odd ship to explore, this however, seemed to be differed with such a large collection of ships to explore from cargo vessels, a warship and a submarine. Overall it was a good few hours well spent and glad we went.

A unique experience to explore such a variety of ships on the water. We started with a free guided tour, which was a great introduction to the most popular boats, and then explored the ships in detail. The marked routes and decent English explanations helped get the most from each ship. Parents and teenagers found the museum engaging. Our favourites... More

You can climb all over the ship and lots of the descriptions are written in Swedish and English. You can also visit the submarine (only if you are ok with very tight spaces and... More

Go on the boats and explore. Do not bring a backpack as you will be climbing up a ladder through a narrow hatch on the submarine. You must be in reasonable shape for the sub and the destroyer, lots of climbing in narrow passageways. Displays have English.

The museum consists of about 7 ships moored together, including a naval destroyer, submarine and cargo ship. They are all from different eras too so it is a history lesson as well as an exploration. There is not a set route to follow around the ships but the no entry zones are well demarcated. There is good narrative and descriptive... More

This museum offers for visit 7-8 ships from the swedish navy army. The visit also includes a submarine, which is pretty rare on the maritime museum usually. They also offer nice activities for kids, where they can learn a lot of things. This museum could be a good lesson for adults too, because it offers good and interesting historical information....
