Trip Planner: Europe / Finland / Aland / Aland Island / Mariehamn / Aland Maritime Museum
Aland Maritime Museum reveals the stories of merchant voyages and artifacts from distant lands, and exhibits one of the world's only four-masted sailing ships still in its original condition. The exhibits include objects like a stolen 18th-century pirate flag and pots that the crew drank their tea from. Read logbooks and archives to find out about adventures at sea, pirate attacks, and talk of mythical creatures. You'll be able to browse through personal letters and diaries of successful brokers and weary sailors. The site features numerous family-friendly interactive stations, including a mast that kids can climb and a karaoke zone. Call in advance, as some sections of the museum require reservations. Note that you can use your ticket to visit the ship, or to return to the museum for a second visit.

A must see place in Åland. The museum was made for all ages. Something for the older People and something for children. Whenever I visit Åland, I make time for this place.

Åland Maritime Museum is a monument to history of Aland as the holder the world's largest fleet of wooden sailing ships. Be sure to visit the four-masted barque named Pommern, built in Glasgow in 1903, which is anchored behind the museum. The interior of the museum is built like a ship's prow cutting into the land. Our cruise ship was docked right next door so very easy to walk over after we had the included cruise tour in morning. Give your self a couple of hours to visit the museum inside and ship outside. When on the ship as price of admission you are provided an audio phone setup to listen to a guided tour of ship. The speakers describe life aboard ship during a fishing cruise.
Pros: -Ticket is good for ship Pommern museum and for the Aland maritime museum where you buy ticket. -Audio guide in many languages for ship museum -Audio guide tells you a story, not boaring facts. My husband thoug felt like it is disadvantage of the audio. He was left with unanswered question. -Nicely maintained and set rooms on the boat, easy to access -Entertaining for kids as well. Few touch screens keep kids interacting, dancing game for adults/kids, you can try on costume on the boat. In ground museum there is few themed kids rooms with a cool stuff -Good looking photos can be made on the boat and in ground museum -Very interesting for all ages expositions in ground museum Cons: -None. We really enjoyed it. I recommend this museum as Must see on Aland island 🇦🇽
An awesome slice of maritime history. Lots and lots of interesting exhibits with real items and scaled models. Also tells the history of Åland area seafaring. Well curated and clean place with friendly staff. Highly recommended way to spend couple of hours in Mariehamn.
unique experience for a tour in an old ship decorated to convey sailing experience of its time. The audio guide helps you to merge further with the old time sailing experience with background noise and actors narrating informative stories. It took us 1 good hour to explore the ship. There is another museum in the building.
One of the best maritime museums in the world. From the exhibitions inside to the magnificent sailing ship Pommern outside...and yes you can go onboard.
