Right here, right now
Every season there is something new happening at Maritiman. Have we added an exhibition since you were last here? If not, we can still promise you that a visit to Maritiman always gives you fresh insight!
It’s 3 October 2013. An overcrowded fishing boat has set sail from Libya. Its destination is the Italian island of Lampedusa. Close to land the boat starts to experience technical problems. A fire is lit on board in a desperate cry for help. Something goes wrong. The fire spreads. In the resulting panic the boat capsizes. Just 155 out of over 500 passengers manage to survive the catastrophe.
Visit our permanent exhibition aboard HMS Nordkaparen, the submarine that patrolled Swedish waters during an era of iron curtains, the arms race and the threat of nuclear war. Dare you climb down into the claustrophobic spaces and listen to the hydrophone that warns of unknown underwater vessels
