Sweden's Seamen's Shipping Office Museum´s goal and purpose is to show what a typical Shipping Office looked like, and the development from the start in 1748 until all Shipping Offices were closed in 1969. The Museum includes an exhibition to honour the about 2.000 Swedish seamen who were lost in the fullfillment of duty at sea during WWII, in neutral and allied service.

Other nice things are a Captain's Saloon from a 1890-built vessel, and an exhibition of crew's living space in an old sailing ship. The Museum also has a comprehensive research department, with an archive covering shipping and ships´ history, and registration lists of seamen from the 1820´s to the 1960´s.
