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.

We had a great day out here - lots for little kids and grown ups including fascinating history about the city's maritime history, a bridge simulator, rolling trawler bridge and aquarium. The cafe is pretty decent or there are lovely cafes nearby. Easy to get...More
