The Naval Museum
Established on 28 June 1997, this new museum stands on the beautiful island of Stumholmen. Among its many attractions is the reconstruction of a gun-deck from the ship-of-the-line Dristigheten from the end of the 18th century. Another attraction is the actual wreck of another 18th century ship, which can be viewed from a glazed underwater tunnel. The displays illustrate the history of the Swedish sailing fleet, including life on board, dockyard trades, weapons and uniforms.
Berthed along the jetty on which the Museum stands are the minesweeper Bremön , the torpedo boat Spica and the full-rigged sailing ship Jarramas .
In the 18th century Boathouse you will find an exhibition of small craft and a workshop. The Swedish Navy's typical Barkar (sailing and pulling boats) are kept here.
