About
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.

Excellent museum about Åland’s maritime development
Jun 2021 • Family
Excellent review on maritime travel development from Åland perspective. Special focus on sailing boats that is topped with Pommern - early 1900’s built sailing “cargo ship”. We thought to be there something like 2 hours but ended up spending 4. There is lot to see for children as well, so whole family is entertained and educated. Really well set up exhibition.

Great place to visit for both: teenagers and adults
Apr 2021 • Family
Maritime museum is very interresting place to visit for people all ages. We have three kids, ages 6, 12 and 15 and we all enjoyed our visit very much. There was a quiz for children and they loved it! They got an icecream as a prize. If you visit Mariehamn, you should definately visit Maritim Museum.

Well worth a visit when you are in Mariehamn - lots of things to do and really gives you an overview about the island and its history (in addition to the information about ships and life on the sea).

Åland and the Maritime Museum belong together
Jul 2020
If you are in Mariehamn, this should not be missed, as Åland lives off shipping. Here you can see a good cross section of it.

Well organized museum
Jul 2020
Åland Maritime Museum is a large and well organized museum. I guess it's a heaven for a maritime enthusiast but for someone like me, it was a nice museum. There was some interesting pieces of course. Worth to visit if you're in town, lots to see.

There is a restaurant and a small shop. With the same ticket you can aslo visit the museum ship Pommern.

Interesting museum
Jul 2020
Here you can explore Åland's maritime heritage. Sailing has, through the ages, been the way the Ålanders travel across the seas. Mariehamn was also home to the world's last large sailing fleet.

The museum has an impressive collection of ship models. There are also ship environments built around original equipment, fittings, and fixtures.

Next to the museum building is the museum ship Pommern. With the same ticket, you can visit it too.

This Museum gives a very good feel for the sailing heritage of the Alan’s Islands and the life experience on board sailing ships. I highly recommend a visit to Mariehamn and it’s Maritime Museum.

This small museum provides good insight into seafaring life in the Aland Islands. The exhibits are well presented and informative without being overwhelming.
