Our children loved it. Dressing up, looking at model boats, an aquarium and info about fishing. A worthwhile visit with young kids. The 'play room' could have done with more toys though (just a few soft toys).

We really like Sjörfartsmusset, it is both a lot of things to do for kids and as a parent you also can enjoy yourself with history.
