Blekinge Sjöfartsmuseum

Maritime museum in Karlshamn

The small maritime museum Blekinge Sjöfartsmuseum is located in the port area of Karlshamn, in the so-called Dahlamagasinet, a former tobacco warehouse.

In the building from 1875 you can learn a lot about traditional shipping off the coast of Blekinge. The exhibition of Blekinge Sjöfartsmuseum includes the crew accommodation of a sailing ship and parts of an old retail store for marine equipment.
