  • Do not miss to visit the museum, which both exhibits the local artist and exhibition of Åland artists. In addition, there is permanent exhibition of various Ålänska articles, pharmacies, history etc.

  • It costs 8 euros for an adult to go into here. Then you should see åland art collection and a temporary, this time Tage Wilén. Larger and more interesting in my opinion is the culture-historical museum with many interesting items that makes you understand the history of Åland. Very educational propounded also! Texts are available in Swedish, Finnish and English.

  • Interesting place, nice exhibits. A little dark inside so can be hard to read some of the text. Came here alone and it took nearly two hours to see everything.
  • Lovely museum to visit for 60 to 90 minutes. Very sweet guide.
