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

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.

I visited with a friend. We enjoyed the downstairs Aquarium. Upstairs is all about boats, with many model boats. I found this dull. The simulator was ok. When I return to Gothenburg, I don't think I'll return.
