BEFORE YOUR VISIT
The Åland Maritime Museum is located on Hamngatan 2 in Mariehamn’s Western Harbour, only 500 metres from the ferry terminal and 1 km from the town centre.
There is a car park outside the Maritime Museum on Hamngatan 2 (2 hours) and by Esplanaden (4 hours), just south of the museum. Remember your parking timer if you park here. There is unlimited parking along Norragatan.
The Åland Maritime Museum is an accessible museum. Lifts and ramps makes it possible for pram drivers and visitors with functional variations to move around the museum with ease. The auditorium and the reception are equipped with audio loops We strive to make our texts easy to read and understand and to keep as many of our exhibited objects displayed out in the open so those who need to “see” the objects with their hands can do so.
Café Byssan offers simple fare, such as coffee, soft drinks, ice cream and cakes. If you want something more substantial there are several good restaurants nearby. Restaurang Nautical and Adlon pizzeria is open all year while ÅSS Paviljongen and Pub Albin are summer restaurants.
We welcome all kinds of groups to the Åland Maritime Museum. Are you ten or more persons in your group you get a discount on your entry fee. If you need a guide for your visit, we are happy to help you with recommendations.
To ensure we can accommodate you properly, we suggest you get in touch with us prior to your visit if you are a larger group. We can also offer a number of attractive evening concepts if that is what you are looking for.
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.
Our charming and able engineers demonstrate the triple expansion steam engine to curious children and adults.
