  • Absolutely wonderful museum with lots of love to details! Amazing!
  • This is a really good maritime museum - if you're interested in Finnish and Baltic Sea ships and seamanship. There is a lot of information on the history of ships and shipboard life in this region. There is a display, which I almost missed, because it's kind of small, on the construction of the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Oasis of the Sea, which was built right here in Turku.
  • Nice place for groups
  • the war ships are really interesting, didn't go to the in house exhibition. cafe was good too!
  • Great place to visit if you are interested about Finnish boat history
