Enter the world of spies this autumn break

Step aboard as a sailor and disembark as a genuine spy this autumn break. Take the opportunity to hone your skills as a secret agent by learning to communicate in Morse code at the Maritiman spy school and make your own binoculars in our spy workshop. Then test your skills and see if you’re a fully fledged agent by participating in our tricky spy quiz. There’s a great prize for all participating agents!

Join us on guided tours and story walks around all the ships, conduct your own experiments in the ocean lab and don’t miss the Fragments exhibition where you get to see missing pieces from Gothenburg’s history, and try your hand at being an archaeologist. Autumn fun at Maritiman is truly filled to the brim with activities for both crafty spies and inquisitive sailors – and of course children’s best friends, Virvelina and Tim, will be on hand during the autumn break to inspire, influence and get you involved! 

Why not take a look at the daily schedule below to plan your autumn break visit? Life jackets for all children can be borrowed on board, and the Matrosen café is ready to satisfy the hunger of all hardworking sailors, secret agents and exploratory archaeologists. We’re open every day between 29 October and 6 November from 11.00 until 16.00. After that we will close for the season.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
