In many respects, the Museum houses a unique collection, which can now be seen in the new modern building on the island of Stumholmen, which lies close to the centre of Karlskrona. Historically, this is very much a self-evident location for the Museum, as for almost 300 years this island was an important part of the Swedish Navy's principal Base.
