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.
The museum lies on Stumholmen in Karlskrona and stretches out into the water in the centre of this naval town.
The quayside is full of museum ships and boats to examine – from 19th century sailing boats (bark) to minesweepers, torpedo boats and the full-rigger Jarramas. Smaller boats are on view in the 18th century launching shed.
The Naval Museum has extensive collections in its archives, library and artefact stores.
