The Kalmar Nyckel Foundation (KNF) is a non-profit educational organization that invites students and visitors to explore the cultural and maritime heritage of Delaware and its enduring ties to Sweden and Finland. KNF is a volunteer-based organization that built, owns, and operates Kalmar Nyckel from its home port of Wilmington. The ship serves as a floating classroom with educational programs that reach more than 30,000 people each year.

Launched in 1997, Kalmar Nyckel is the official Tall Ship of Delaware and a recognizable icon for its home state. The ship serves as a catalyst for educational, social, and economic development in Delaware and beyond.

The Copeland Maritime Center, located at the home of the Kalmar Nyckel, is a year-round riverfront museum and learning center. Visitors, school groups, crew trainees, and guests can explore Delaware’s maritime and cultural heritage.
