The Maritime Museum and Aquarium (Sjöfartsmuseet Akvariet) is a museum that really takes children seriously. It explains all about seafaring life and the industry of Gothenburg, and tells the story of how around a million Swedes emigrated to the United States by boat from the city. There are interactive exhibitions where kids can board a fishing boat, load containers on a cargo carrier, or crawl into a shipwreck. There is also a large aquarium, and you can pet some of the fish and underwater animals. Ay ay my captain, we’re leaving!
