Guided tour - Galion figures

Location: Karlskrona
Arena/Place: Marinmuseum
Category: Events, Guidade turer, Exhibitions
Date: Wednesday 26 feb 2020

In the naval museum's pompous Galionshall, one of the world's most unique collections of galleon pictures - wooden sculptures that once sat in the bow of Swedish warships, is displayed.

Massive wooden figures, often several meters high and up to a ton in weight - the figureheads are high-class art from a time long gone. Most of the figures in the Galjonshallen carry an interesting history, not least because they have been involved in large sea battles.

In this tour you will learn more about the characters' history, purpose and creator.
