A visit to the Aland Maritime Museum is exciting for children and adults alike. The exhibitions are filled with dramatic stories and fantastic objects, such a genuine 18th century pirate’s flag. There are also lots of interactivities, such as a climbing mast, a bridge simulator and a karaoke. Seadog, landlubber or in between - Aland Maritime Museum has something for everybody.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Aland Maritime Museum - it provides a rich introduction to the days of sailing. It is very well organized with excellent exhibits and some interactive displays. Particularly enjoyed the tall ship outside.

When in Aland you need to know about the maritime history. This place has a well planned exhibition that is easy to understand. Good location, nice place, pretty restaurant, too. Highly recommendable, even though a bit expensive.
