Kalmar Maritime Museum

The museum focus on the local maritime history. The large collection is ranked among the most interesting in the country. The many portraits of ships, with the often naive so called "captain pictures", dominate. A great number of ship's models completes the exhibits of the museum. The library and archives take nearly half of the museum, which together with the large photo and negative collection forms one of the largest collections of history sources in the county.
