Aland Maritime Museum, Mariehamn
(4.6/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Aland Maritime Museum reveals the stories of merchant voyages and artifacts from distant lands, and exhibits one of the world's only four-masted sailing ships still in its original condition. The exhibits include objects like a stolen 18th-century pirate flag and pots that the crew drank their tea from. Read logbooks and archives to find out about adventures at sea, pirate attacks, and talk of mythical creatures. You'll be able to browse through personal letters and diaries of successful brokers and weary sailors. The site features numerous family-friendly interactive stations, including a mast that kids can climb and a karaoke zone. Call in advance, as some sections of the museum require reservations. Note that you can use your ticket to visit the ship, or to return to the museum for a second visit.

  • Very nice small looking but really much bigger ant more time consuming than expected. Well done museum. Good and intersting indoor displays and of course the windjammer "Pommern" is very interesting to explore.
  • An exceptionally well constructed museum. Much bigger and more time-consuming than it looks. Very good indoor displays, especially regarding the 'Grain Race', and of course the Pommern is great fun to explore.
  • Lots of interesting stuff and fun for kids.
  • Nice museum and collections
  • Quite superb, for what it contains, how presented, and explained, from both technical and socioeconomic point of view. Looks after the uninitiated and children well.
