In a private home in Mariehamn one can find one of the world’s finest and most detailed ship models. It was built by an Åland sailor in a POW camp during World War II with neither drawings nor tools at hand. How did he do it? Who was he? Watch the moving documentary “Dreaming of Ponape – a man and his model”
Let our knowledgeable guides inspire you and bring to life the maritime history of Åland using our splendid exhibits. The guided tours can be ordered in Swedish, Finnish and English.
Linnea (7) and Julia (9) have visited the Maritime Museum many times, both with their family and with nursery and school. Both of them have also hosted their birthday parties at the museum. We asked the girls what they like best about the Maritime Museum and what their top tips are. 1# – The play room is the best! 2# – Steer the ship 3# – To search for rat holes 4# – To look at the piranhas and turtle
