Swedish National Maritime and Transport Museums
The Swedish National Maritime and Transport Museums have responsibility for the museums in Swedish state care that have a maritime and transport history profile. These are the Naval Museum, the Maritime Museum, the Vasa Museum, Vrak – Museum of Wrecks and the Railway Museum.
The agency's mission is to preserve and develop the maritime and transport history cultural heritage and to increase people's knowledge about it.
The Naval Museum relates the history of the Swedish naval forces – recalling the battles of galleons when Sweden was a great power, the events of the cold war and today.
In the Maritime Museum, the whole family can explore man’s thousand-year old history of life at sea.
The Vasa Museum is one of Scandinavia’s most visited museums. It is here that you will find in all its glory, the unique and well preserved man-of-war Vasa from 1628, embellished with hundreds of wooden sculptures.
Vrak - Museum of Wrecks
Vrak - Museum of Wrecks exposes our often forgotten cultural heritage at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Thanks to marine archaeology visitors can explore the rich history and personal stories that lie beneath the surface through digital exhibitions.
The Railway Museums collection is of international top class and consists of over 300 vehicles from the mid-1800s to the present day and includes Prins August, which is the world's oldest operable locomotive.
