the ship models in this museum are rather large like 6-8 feet long. It is amazing how much detail you can really see withodels this big. A similar museum in Amsterdam had much smaller models.

Sankt Erik is Sweden's first seafaring icebreaker. Built Finnboda shipyard and was launched in 1915. Was removed from service in 1977 and has been a museum ship since 1980. Very interesting ship to see.

Not sure why there are poor reviews- this is a museum of maritime history. That's what the promise (and it is no charge to visit) and that is what you get. Many fantastically detailed models of many ships through history. Detailed info on the long...More

Sometimes one visits newly renovated museums and can't help but think that this place was probably more interesting before. This was the case with the Sjöhistoriska museet. The museum seems to have forgotten that not all visitors are kids...I found some of the museum signs...More

center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
