It is no wonder that a country with a coastline that stretches 3,218 km has a long naval history. A great place to explore this history is in the capital city, Stockholm, at the National Maritime Museum. With this combination ticket you can learn more about Sweden’s maritime history and its capital city.
The Swedish National Maritime Museum in Stockholm is home to about 900,000 photos, 50,000 objects and 45,000 drawings, all related to the sea, coast, ships and boats, past and present. As you make your way through the museum, you will see model ships, weapons, uniforms and art. A not-to-miss highlight at the museum is the memorial hall dedicated to the Amphion, Gustav III’s pleasure yacht.
There is something for everyone at the National Maritime Museum. There are both permanent and temporary exhibits in the museum, to make each visit a different experience. There is even a playroom for the littlest explorers (0-6), where they can play in a magical part of the Baltic Sea where there are submarines, fish, sunken treasures and shipwrecks.
There is lots to see in Stockholm no matter when you visit, as there are over 50 museums to explore. The RED Sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus can easily take you to many of these museums, including the National Maritime Museum. The bus is a great way to explore the city, as it will take you to Gamla Stan, Södermalm, Djurgården and more.
When you are on the bus you can use the free Wi-Fi and listen to the audio guide to learn more about the city. We recommend downloading the RED Sightseeing app, as it will show you where the bus stops are and where the buses are in the city. The app even has a free walking tour in it.
