The floating maritime museum Maritiman is moored at Packhuskajen in central Gothenburg. Its collection of ships, boats and barges are all floating on the Göta Älv river and, according to museum educator Johannes Olsson, the museum is part of the city’s cultural heritage. “Maritiman represents Swedish maritime history, both military and civilian,” he says. “For more than 30 years, we have been displaying the living conditions at sea and the experience of being in the navy.” The destroyer Småland is particularly popular. The largest vessel on display, she is as long as a football field and eight floors high.
