#1 of 13 in Things to do in Mariehamn
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.

  • We never get enough of Maritime Museum! Feel free to reserve plenty of time, especially when the children are with. The Museum is not big but there's plenty to see, do, move on and discover with the whole body. No cakewalk to get home the children after 2 hours:)

  • A modern museum for the whole of the family. Lots of activities aswell as historical perspective. The museum is located next to the old 4 masted bark Pommern, still in original condition.  more »
  • This hotel has from its beginnings been blessed with a large collection of well preserved and interesting objects. The Museum has managed to further evolve with the times and emerging as a highly successful response to how historical dissemination should take place in 2017. It is an essential prerequisite for the Museum's qualities that the åland Islands are so well stocked with interesting, maritime history. Pretty much everyone will enjoy a stay at the Museum. This applies to families with children, sailors and so all the rest of us ordinary people.

  • Museums are hard to make interesting but the biat museum at Åland is as good as I'd imagine any contemporary maritime museum to be. Lovely models, actual boat parts, try-it-yourself parts as well as good kids entertainment bits as well. Not beyond this world but very good.
  • Very well made, easy to go and so much info
  • 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.
  • Good place to visit with children
