This is a surprising great museum. We went there as it was one of few museums opened during Easter weekend. And we were pleasantly surprised. We spent 2 hours there but could easily spend two more hours. On the first floor there is aquarium with...More

We visited this museum during a rainy summer day, surprisingly uncrowded for being the summer vacation time of year. The museum is quality content wise but it's dated and lacking interaction. The aquarium is sub par compared to Universeum. The museum in for an overhaul...More

I visited here with the main intention of seeing the aquarium, thankfully the entrance was included on my city card as I would have regretted paying to go in. The aquarium itself is quite small and sadly a lot of the tanks are either empty...More

There was sufficient English signage to understand the display. Such interesting material about the history of shipping in this town - I hadn't realised about WW11 activities nor about the scale of Swedish emmigration

For 40 SEK you get an annual admission for 5 museums in Gothenburg. This one has two aquariums = they are good But unfortunately only few displays are commented in Englisch = so I just walked thru.

This museum has several ship miniatures, that tell the history of the sea exploration by Sweeden. It also has some nice aquariums in the first floor.

Not a regular maritime museum filled with rich history and memorabilia. It did have one sort of floor of history and ship models, but not many artifacts and depth. The rest was dedicated to kids. The aquarium was like a room filled with home aquariums,...More

We took a quick trip through the second floor of the museum and the aquarium. The admission price is 40 kr. and is a ticket to 5 museums in Gothenburg. Good value. There was not much English in the ship section.
