Sjöhistoriska

The Maritime Museum is the central institution within the Swedish National Maritime and Transport Museums which also oversees its three sister museums, the Naval Museum, the Vasa Museum and the Railway Museum.

Exhibits include ships' interiors, navigational instruments, weapons, figureheads, marlinspike seamanship, and art. It preserves the original cabin and sun-crowned stern of the schooner Amphion (though at present they are built into the structure). It was on board the Amphion that Gustav III planned his strikes against Russia during the 1788–1790 war.
