The collection here is comprehensive, and is acknowledged to be one of the most complete in the country. It is divided into various sections including a shipbroker's office, a sailmaker's workshop and that of a ship's carpenter, complete with tools. There is a large collection of ship portraits, and the displays include many other historic relics. The Archives house many drawings from the Oskarshamn shipyard. The arrangement of ship's portraits and artefacts is of particular interest. The Museum provides an important insight into the cultural history of the region.
