Maritime Museum - Review

Sweden’s naval history is so huge that they need at least three museums just to cover it all properly. This museum, housed in a 18th century neoclassical building, focuses on merchant shipping and shipbuilding. And that’s still not enough - this complex only has a plethora of objects, drawings and photos. The boats themselves are outside of Vasa Museum. The collection includes historical ships, various types of boats, marine archaeology artifacts, maps, books, globes. At least there’s a nice restaurant with a great view. The exhibit on the Swedish East India Company is great too. Check out the bronze statue of a sailor outside the museum - it commemorates the sailors who died in WWII. In the summertime, the park outside the museum turns into a concert venue.

Maritime Museum, Stockholm Reviews

  • This museum has free admission and free tours and gives a great overview about Swedish Marine Ships throughout the ages. It is a bit far away from Gamla Stan so expect to walk for about an hour. I can recommend this museum to everyone who is interested in ships, marine and Swedish marine economy.

  • Love the place!! Models of all kinds of ships, submarines, sailing ships, mines, history about shipping and all things related to that. Nice café, brilliant location just by the water. Also very close to other really good museums!!! Free entry! Free audio guide!

  • Nice museum!! had alot of fun here and ill say they have an extensive selection of small model boats all around, also free!! def recommend!!

  • Sjöhistoriskamuseet (The National Maritime Museum) it was opened on May 28, 1938 and is located at Ladugårdsgärdet in Stockholm. The museum shows the history of the shipping and naval sweden. The museum contains mostly of numerous models of ships. Ahoj! Ships everywhere! And a lot of other stuff they brought back. Including China,(porcelain),tea, guns,slaves and the black plague. Thank you east India! If you aren’t satisfied by stories of people dying in numerous battles, Uboats that meets their faith and different methods of how to “correct” young sailors, you can always go out back and there is an elephant graveyard of Canons and stuff to be scared of. Oh! and they have a café/restaurant as well. Get yer food and climb out the ladder on the window at the back. To the galley!

  • It's free which is always a good thing and they do a decent buffet lunch.
