In the Maritime Museum, the whole family can explore man’s thousand-year old history of life at sea.

Past meets present in exhibitions that focus on e.g. merchant shipping, marine archaeology and the Baltic Sea.

The museum's archives, photo archives, library and artefact stores, contain rich collections that reflect Sweden's maritime history.

The museum is also responsible for cultural care of the maritime area by listing culturally important vessels and granting subsidies towards the maintenance of those that are historically valuable.

The Maritime Museum is housed in architect Ragnar Östberg's elegant building in the royal parkland, Djurgården, in Stockholm.
