The museum is situated on the island of Stumholmen and is one of the most popular sights of southern Sweden. Here you can get historical facts and see fascinating objects from the Swedish Navy.
Marinmuseum is also a very popular place for children and their parents to spend a fun day together.
Just in time for the summer of 2014, The Naval museum opened the gates to the public and presented the only submarine museum of its kind in the world. The new submarine hall contains of the submarine HMS Neptun and the dive boat Hajen.
Imagine entering a large hall of steel and concrete. Ahead looms the HMS Neptun, an intact Swedish submarine from the Cold War. You can board, feel, smell and listen in an environment that was previously closed and prohibited.
Right next to it lies the Hajen, the Swedish Navy's first submarine from 1904. This gem was built to be deployed in the expected war with Norway. It exudes 19th century and industrial history, while representing 20th century technology.
Outside the museum there are several interesting old ships. For example the las fully rigged sailboat of the Swedish Navy: Jarramas, the mine sweaper HMS Bremön from the second world war and the robot ship Västervik that was present during the incident in october 1981 when the Russian submarine U137 went on shore outside Karlskrona.
During the summer, guided tours are arranged every day, both in the museum and onboard the ships.
