Welcome to Virvelinas world

Welcome to new adventures with Virvelina and Tim! Virvelina is the children’s best friend on board. She is inventive, smart and adventurous. Above all, she knows loads about boats and the sea. But she still always needs help from new little recruits and she is happy to tell them everything about the ships and her adventures.

Virvelina always has new ideas, inventions and brain-teasers on the go, and she is simply fantastic when it comes to teaching people new things. She prefers to stay on our submarine, which she insists on calling Nordis (although the museum manager says that it is called Nordkaparen). If you have time to listen, she is more than happy to talk about her grandfather, who was a great inventor and who actually designed the submarine. At least that’s what Virvelina says. By the way, you’ll recognise her by her self-made diver’s suit and the special goggles that she found in an old chest in her grandfather’s workshop. If you want to get to know Virvelina and her world really well, then there is a game app (only in Swedish) you can download here before your visit. Or why not plan your party on board so that all your friends can also get to meet Virvelina or Tim?

Virvelina’s best friend is called Tim. Tim is a real nerd, in the best sense of the word! He is fascinated by science, and in particular the marine sciences. He can sometimes be a little shy and retiring, but just wait until he puts on his lab coat. Then nothing can shake his self-confidence. Virvelina and Tim form the perfect pair and complement one another brilliantly. Virvelina’s love of adventure often leads to her and Tim heading off on voyages of discovery that he may initially be unsure about, but which almost always end up being a huge success. Tim contributes with smart solutions to the problems they face, and Virvelina finds it difficult not to be affected by his commitment to the sea and its inhabitants.

The common bond between Tim and Virvelina is their huge interest in Maritiman. Tim spends lots of his time there in his ocean lab, and he also has his own little lab truck he takes out to Maritiman’s visitors so that he can do cool experiments together with visiting children.
