Museumship Pommern, Mariehamn

4.5
#2 of 13 in Things to do in Mariehamn
As part of Aland Maritime Museum, Museumship Pommern presents artifacts aboard a four-masted sailing ship anchored in the harbor. Rumored to be the world's only remaining four-masted ship in its original condition, the so-called lucky vessel survived both world wars intact and lost only four crew members in its entire history. Today this ship (built in 1903) is considered the symbol of the town. Board the 95 m (312 ft) long vessel to see the complex masts and tour its interior spaces, from hold to charthouse. Examine the exotic collection of artifacts collected during its voyages. Piranhas and shark jaws adorn the shelves, and one display presents a rare pirate flag. Note that your ticket is valid for either an additional visit to this attraction or a visit to the maritime museum.

  • It is under construction right now, but it looks stunning
  • The only four-masted merchant sailing ship in the world still in its original state. Walk the decks, explore the living quarters. The exhibition on board tells of the Pommern's early 20th century voyages out to Australia then back to Europe loaded with wheat. A short film about the ship's 1936-37 voyage .
  • Old wooden ship with cool history. Worth seeing.
  • One of the last great windjammers. interesting to see, you really get a feeling of what it must have been like to work on one.
  • Very nice.
