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.

Good museum for both maritime lovers and as family outing. Especially Pommern ship which is attached to the museum was fun for the children. We had only 2 hours which was too little time.

This museum is not to be missed, along with its tall ship alongside it offers a rich glance into the days of sail, and you get to see one of the very few original pirate flags still in existence.Highly recommended
