For its 100th anniversary, the museum aims to present itself as a new type of institution. While remaining family friendly as always, the museum will now also be open daily from 10 am to 10 pm for events.

– July 2024: Launch of the new electric ferry into use as public transport

Primarily designed for public transport, this innovative vessel will operate between the Stockholm suburb of Ekerö and the city center, planned for 2024.

With a speed of 30 knots, it surpasses other electric boats, offering faster commuting than traditional subway and bus routes. This electric vessel is not only faster than rush hour car travel but is also significantly more energy-efficient than diesel-powered vessels on the same route. Boasting a long range and zero emissions, the Candela P-12 Shuttle represents a sustainable and efficient leap in marine technology for public transportation.
