Create an itinerary including Aland Maritime 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.

  • A very comprehensive museum, covering the whole of the shipping and sailing history of the region. The only aspects missing are related to steam and later changes in the modern era. For anyone...

  • One of the best maritime museums in the world. From the exhibitions inside to the magnificent sailing ship Pommern outside...and yes you can go onboard.
  • Compact museum includes a kids playing area to showcase the marine life in a playful way. The staff is very friendly and the ticket includes both the museum and the Pommern
  • lots of things to look! also, kids really enjoyed the museum
  • Great place to visit with kids. Lots for them to do and a really imaginative play area has been built on the lowest level of the museum. It was so well thought out- the kids loved it. Also great you can visit the ship next to the museum with the same museum ticket.
  • Small but really well done exhibition. My favourite was the small rooms made to look like from inside of the sailingboat. Also the curiosities were interesting.
