  • One of the finest of the main museums in Finland. Nicely executed the main show. Changing the exhibition this time was aimed at children, so I do not know how it assessed as an adult through the eyes and good too looked like. Throughout the Museum, taken from the children.

  • Boring. I thought it would be much better than it was. If you are a man or woman interested in boats, motors, lures for fishing, and anything to do with the sea, then go. Unfortunately I did not enjoy...  more »
  • Very much! Just a very cool Museum. Here not just collected everything that relates to the history of navigation, it created such a powerful atmosphere of seafaring that come in full delight. In addition to the exhibitions in the buildings, there are street-and this, of course, boats. From sailing ships to modern warships, all lined up along the promenade and ready to visit. Unfortunately, winter is available for visits only one vessel (passenger liner, part of which is now a hotel), but it was also great-very impressive bridge.
