Important information

TICKETS AND SEASONAL PASSES

Due to the corona pandemic, we recommend you to purchase your ticket or season pass in our web shop before your visit. This way, we can help out to avoid unnecessary queues on board.

SAFE AND SECURE VISITS

We still carefully follow the Swedish Public Health Agency's recommendations to be able to offer a museum experience in a safe, secure and careful manner. However, this may lead to future adjustments to both program content and opening hours within short notice of time. On our website there is always updated information about current opening hours and program activities. The safety of visitors and employees is our highest priority.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP ENSURE A SAFE AND SECURE VISIT

  • Buy the tickets online before your visit
  • Keep a distance from other parties.
  • Use our outdoor seating if you order food or coffee.
  • Wash and / or disinfect hands frequently. There are stations with hand disinfection around the facility.
  • Avoid visiting us if you are ill or have the slightest symptoms.

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.

We do not currently have special pram parking facilities, but if space allows you can leave your pram on the Ada I pontoon. Please bring a baby carrier for your child.

disturbing infrastructure projects in the area

Right now, it is a bit messy outside Maritiman. In 2022, 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.

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.

 

HOW TO GET HERE

Maritiman is moored at Packhuskajen quay in central Gothenburg. Its immediate neighbours are Göteborgsoperan (the opera house) and Kajskjul 8. It takes around ten minutes to walk to Maritiman from Gothenburg Central Station, Brunnsparken and Drottningtorget. 

BY BICYCLE

Bicycle parking facilities are available at Göteborgsoperan. Gothenburg also has a bicycle loan scheme known as Styr & Ställ. Bicycles can be collected from the bicycle station outside Tullpackhuset. Please note that you need to register to use the bicycles.

BY TRAIN, BUS OR TRAM

The nearest bus and tram stops are Stenpiren and Lilla Bommen. From there it is a short walk of about five minutes to Maritiman. For exact times and routes, please go to the Västtrafik travel planner.

BY CAR

Look up the directions on Google Maps, for instance. The closest place to park is right outside Maritiman, at the Packhuskajen quay. However, during the season this may be affected by the ongoing infrastructure projects. There is also a multi-storey car park at the Nordstan shopping centre.
