Our exhibitions covers the relationship between the sea and man, past and present.
Haenyeo - Women of the Sea
For more than 1000 years there have been fisherwomen diving on the island of Jeju, South Korea. The exhibition is on display from the 3rd of March 2018.
Refugee across the Sea
People of all times have crossed oceans in search of a better life – away from poverty, war and persecution. The sea is an eternity of both hope and menace.
The American Dream
Emigrants and luxury voyagers travelled on the Swedish-American Line's ships. The exhibition describes the history of the America ships and the people who sailed on them.
City along the Waterside
The "City along the Waterside" is a permanent exhibition of cultural history that encompasses everything from the global port system to the local quayside. Visitors encounter stories from the seaport in the four sections of the exhibition.
The age of sail power
About Swedish shipping from a historical perspective. You'll find exciting stories from the old shipyards, what happened when steamboats took over and life on board ships.
The battle between sails and steam
About how steam engines started to compete with sailing ships. About life on board for Swedish sailors on the seven seas, and the memories they brought home with them.
