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.


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!

Guided tours onboard the Pommern

This Summer we offer many opportunities to visit the Pommern. Restoration work are however being done onboard, which means that the access is limited and you can only visit with a guide. You buy your ticket at the Åland Maritime Museum reception, and then start walking to the ship that is at a 10-15 minutes walking distance from the museum. A guide will greet you by the Pommern and take you on a tour of the ship.

The tours start at 12:00, 13:00 and 14:00. The ship is closed weekends and holidays. The tours are adjusted to the size and needs of the group and will be conducted in Swedish, Finnish and English. The tour is approx. 45 minutes long.
