Expo East Indiaman Götheborg 2.0

The Swedish Ship Götheborg is open for visitors every day throughout the summer!

Expo East Indiaman Götheborg 2.0

From Thursday, 2nd of July, we will be open for visitors daily between 11 AM and 4 PM until Sunday, 16th of August. To spread extra joy and showcase our operations at home, we are now launching the new program “Expo East Indiaman Götheborg 2.0”.

We have created a pop-up store on our pier that is accessible for everyone. Those who buy an entrance will get a look into our ship workshop for the first time ever. Here you will really get to feel the smell of tar. To this, we add a historical exhibition in our Ships Hall where visitors can immerse themselves in the Swedish East India Company's travels to China in the 18th century. We also show a film from our Expedition to China 2005. There will also be the opportunity to take and feel various items we exhibit over the summer. Last, but not least, all paying guests are offered a guided tour onboard the ship!

Safety and distance are important to us and we are following the guidelines from the authorities. Through careful planning, we have created a flow-through of our premises and ship so that visitors feel safe. There will also be a limited number of 40 people per hour to minimize crowds. Every hour we also offer guided tours in English.

Tickets are purchased through Ticketmaster or on-site at our Pop-up store, subject to availability.
