Military Museum Museum
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 experience for the whole family. Child friendly with both scavenger hunt for the kids, custom exhibits where you got the PIN and touch the stuff and playroom on two levels.

  • It costs about 10 euros for an adult, and it's a bit too expensive, we think. There is a lot to see. Is best suited for families with small children, we think. Is not accessible because it is crowded to go between and uneven floors. But nice visit with good info about shipping in Åland. Warm greeting, Honest guests

  • Was there with his grandchildren. Wonderful to see their treasure hunt. This is a nice activity that gave both joy and was instructive for children, 2 7 1 5 & years. Really anything that caught their fancy. Exemplary museum which is well worth a 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.
  • Good place to visit with children
  • 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.
  • Great museum worth seeing.
