Maritiman Göteborg

Navigating your way...

...and getting on board!

Important Information

It is important to know that your visit to Maritiman is currently affected by both quay renovation work, ionizing radiation and the West Link project. We do everything in our power to make your visit as good as usual, albeit a little different.

TICKETS AND SEASONAL PASSES

We recommend you to purchase your ticket or season pass in our web shop before your visit. This way, you are always guaranteed the best price - and avoid queuing on board.

We also accept Go City Gothenburg pass holders.

ACCESSIBILITY

Maritiman’s entrance, café and ships are listed in TD – Sweden’s accessibility database. Maritiman exhibits ships in their original condition, which means some have high thresholds and steep ladders for getting aboard. It is not possible, therefore, to move around by wheelchair. Guide dogs are permitted.

Currently, Packhuskajen is under renovation, which means we have a temporary entrance with level differences. Therefore, please bring a baby carrier for your child if possible, and feel free to park the stroller on the quay. If you need to use an alternative route with a stroller/walker/wheelchair to board the facility, please inform our staff.

IONIZING RADIATION ON BOARD THE SUBMARINE

Measurements made by The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority on August 25, 2022 showed a risk of ionizing radiation in the reflective tape placed to mark certain places inside the submarine Nordkaparen. The submarine has been closed to visitors ever since - and will remain closed until decontamination has been completed. However, this does not affect the rest of the museum.

disturbing infrastructure projects in the area

Right now, it is a bit messy outside Maritiman. In 2024, parts of Packhuskajen quay will undergo extensive renovations. This, combined with the construction of the major transport infrastructure project in Gothenburg called The West Link, could make it seem a bit difficult to get to/from Maritiman right now. At the moment we have a temporary entrance with level differences. Therefore, please bring a baby carrier for your child if possible, and feel free to park the stroller on the quay. If you need an alternative route with a stroller/walker/wheelchair to board the facility, please inform our staff.

The parts of the quay where the work is in progress will be a fenced work area, but there are references for alternative pedestrian and bicycle paths in the meantime. You will still be able to walk along the water along most of the quay.
