“Maritime theme in a maritime city - could it be better?”

Sjofartsmuseet Goteborg
Ranked #29 of 137 things to do in Gothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 July 2010

I really love this museum. In the permanent exhibition you can watch boats and boats and boats and ships. Honestly speaking there are a lot of boats, but they also tell what it is like being on the sea and how they fish and so on and so forth. Since Gothenburg is a city close to the sea they have a lot to show.

They usually also have an interesting exhibition that is not permanent. Once I visited they had an exhibition about tattoos, since the first ones getting tattoos were sailors. Another time they showed stuff from the East Indian Company.

They also have a small exhibition with live sea creatures. This is definitely the children's favourite part.

This is a traditional maritime museum with lots of ship models, paintings, displays about shipbuilding, shipboard life, shipping lines, and the fishing industry. The displays are well done. Note that the captions are only in Swedish. The admission desk has English summaries, but they do not include all the detail that is on the displays. Still, if you are interested in maritime topics it's an interesting place.
