Important information

TICKETS AND SEASONAL PASSES

Due to the corona pandemic, you need to buy your ticket or season pass in our web shop. In connection with the purchase, you book arrival time for your visit. We let in a limited number of visitors each arrival time.

SAFE AND SECURE VISITS

We all need to take responsibility and help each other to stop the spread of covid-19. Maritiman has taken several precautions to minimize the risks associated with the spread of coronavirus. The safety of visitors and employees is our highest priority.

HOW WE MAKE YOUR VISIT SAFE AND SECURE

  •  We have limited our visitor capacity, both at the museum and in the café.
  •  We only accept visitors with pre-purchased entrance tickets in order to spread the visitors throughout the day.
  •  We have limited the length of the visit to a maximum of 2 hours.
  •  We have a special route through the ships which we recommend that all visitors follow. In narrow passages and small spaces, there are signs showing the maximum number of visitors at a time.
  •  We have paused all activities that may cause crowds. Instead, we focus on digital activities where you can explore the ships on your own with the help of an audio guide. Our guides also do guided tours outside for smaller groups.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP ENSURE A SAFE AND SECURE 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 2021, 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 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 best place to park is right outside Maritiman, at the Packhuskajen quay. There is also a multi-storey car park at the Nordstan shopping centre.
