Overview

A visit to the Aland Maritime Museum is exciting for children and adults alike. The exhibitions are filled with dramatic stories and fantastic objects, such a genuine 18th century pirate’s flag. There are also lots of interactivities, such as a climbing mast, a bridge simulator and a karaoke. Seadog, landlubber or in between - Aland Maritime Museum has something for everybody.

Famous for the P class ships that were among the last commercial sailing vessels in the world the mariehamm museum is a fitting tribute to its sailors and ships. Lots of material nicely displayed. Even a postcard from someone holidayingin West Hartlepool in the 1930's

Surprisingly nice museum with technical insight into the lore of the shipping industry of 1800's. An authentic "ship" inside you can visit to see what the ship life was like. Authetic pirate flag and memorabilia from times past. Worth a visit. Suitable for kids too.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Aland Maritime Museum - it provides a rich introduction to the days of sailing. It is very well organized with excellent exhibits and some interactive displays. Particularly enjoyed the tall ship outside.
