A big surprise
Jul 2020
For a Finnish museum this is quite big and there are loads of things to see. Personally I am not at all interrested in boats and such but this museum was still interresting and if you are into maritime stuff I am sure this will be great. I wanted to visit because I wanted to see the seamonster exhibition but that wasn't really very good.

Very interesting marine museum
Jul 2020 • Family
Especially the Ruotsinsalmen taistelut -section was superb. Also the ice-breaker Tarmo is worth checking. There are so much to see in the whole place that it is better to reserve at least 3 hours for the visit.

Very interesting attraction
Jul 2020
Very interesting museum and exhibitions. The icebreaker Tarmo was really interesting to see although it was quite monotonic. It is also rather cramped but that should not be a surprise. The exhibitions in the museum were well organized and interesting. There is also lots to see for kids.

Visiting Fateful Svenksund exhibition
Jul 2020 • Family
New Fateful Svenksund exhibition was great, have to give 5/5 points for team who have done this modern exhibition! Loved the interactive map table, several items from the wreck and how exhibition was built up like under the see.

Vellamo is also filled with excellent Basic exhibition and building itself it sight too.

If you are in to sea, boats and ships - prepair to spend several hours here.

I am sailing
Jul 2020
Very modern museum about boats and ships. There is quite good sample of finnish boatbuilding skills and how shipping evolved to this day. All those different kind of exhibitions are also very interesting. So, if you are interested in how people sail around the world and close to the coast, go to the Maritime museum. There is also stories about the history of the Kotka region.

Modern Museum about old and not really old ships
Oct 2019
Museum is organized in a clever way, it is a mixture of temporary exhibitions and regular collections. The space is projected so well, that it was comfortable to stay their for several hours. Besides several rooms are designed specially for children. All signs are in Finnish and English, so many options to learn about old vessels and modern ships.

Worth to visit
Jul 2019 • Family
Building itself is sight, nice mosaic wood stairway ect. And the museum with all the Maritime history and real boats like icebraker Tarmo ect is worth to spend Day here. Interactive things made kids also happy. There's also General museum inside, reserve some time for that too.

A great interactive museum
Jul 2019 • Family
A really good interactive museum that kept young kids entertained throughout. They loved the sea-monster exhibition which was a mix between a soft play and educational area. There are lots of activities to get involved with and the kids loved it. The museum is well designed and is modern and clean; in fact it is an architectural masterpiece from the outside. A really nice mix of exhibitions from local history to the coastguard, to boats and art. Thoroughly recommended for a young family.
