Bergkvara Sjöfartsmuseum

Museet ligger i ett hundraårigt hamnmagasin med vidsträckt havsutsikt. Till sjöfartsmuseet hör en intakt skeppssmedja på närbelägna Dalaskår. Det gamla magasinet är i sig av musealt intresse och ger en god exponering av foton (personer och fartyg), kaptens-tavlor; modeller och allehanda föremål (navigahons-utrustning, riggdetaljer, timmermansverktyg m.m.). Även foton och föremål som visar ålfiskets betydelse sedan medeltiden samt lots- och furväsendets roll finns med.

I undervåningen finns bla. en komplett båtbyggarverkstad. Den långsträckta kustsocknen Söderåkra var långe en av landets mest sjöfartsberoende socknar. Bergkvara var i början av seklet en av Sveriges 2-3 största hemhamnar för segel- fartyg. Sedan början av 1800-talet har skeppsvarv funnits i Bergkvara, Djursvik, Grämkulla och Skeppevik



Bergkvara Maritime Museum

The museum is located in a century-old port warehouse with sweeping ocean views. As a maritime museum is an intact ship tank at the nearby Dalaskår. The old magazine is in the interest of the museum context and provides a good exposure of the photo (people and ships), captain-paintings, models and all sorts of objects (navigation equipment, rigging details, carpentry tools, etc.). Although photographs and objects that show the fishery importance since the Middle Ages and the pilots and furväsendets role are included.

The lower floor is blah. a complete boat building workshop. The elongated coastal parish Söderåkra was tall one of the countries most dependent on maritime parishes. Bergkvara was the beginning of the century, one of Sweden's 2-3 largest home port for sailing ships. Since the early 1800s, the shipyard has been in Bergkvara, Djursvik, Grämkulla and Skeppevik.
