Over 400 years of Sweden’s deep relationship with the sea have been transformed into entertaining and informative exhibits in Gothenburg’s maritime museum. Military actions, shipbuilding, and fishing are given the spotlight here as they have been integral to Swedish society for centuries. The second part of the museum, the aquarium, focuses on what lies beneath the surface of Sweden’s chilly waters. A sample of indigenous marine life is displayed in its natural habitat.
