Upptäck och upplev Ålands Sjöfartsmuseum
Worldclass ship's models
The Åland Maritime Museum has an impressive collection of ship’s models, mostly sailing ships. Some were made on board ship by sailors in their spare time; others were made by professional model makers. Common to all of them is that they are very high standard and show evidence of skill, knowledge and patience.
The most kid-friendly museum on Åland
At the Åland Maritime Museum there are a lot of things for families to discover and do. Go aloft, stow cargo and take command of your own ship. Finding the ship’s rat Ruby’s own mini exhibitions, cleverly hidden in cute little ratholes in the museum, is a task that everybody can get involved in. And don’t miss our imaginative children’s room Ruby and the Sea. Here you can dive into the sea and discover wrecks, secret mermaid grottos and exciting sea creatures.
WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY
A truly wonderful museum! This place is a true gem! If you are remotely interested in ships and life on ships, or just the history of the Aland Islands, this is well worth the time. As a great bonus, they have managed to make a museum that is great fun for kids as well - quite an accomplishment!
