See & do

Here we list what you can see and do in Kalmar

Kalmar Sjöfartsmuseum

This small museum in the center of Kalmar contains artefacts from the history of shipping, and you can also get a guide who has sailed the seven seas and who can tell you stories about life on the sea.

At Kalmar maritime museum there are thousands of nautical objects; such as ship models, captain's boards and exotic objects. They strive to maintain the genuine atmosphere of a traditional maritime museum, so it smells of tar and the sound of the sea can be heard in the shells. Some of the areas that the museum tries to document are Kalmar Shipyard, shipping companies, the local shipping, boat types, ships, the stevedore, the harbor and sailors from the Kalmar region.
