  • Extensive museum with full size and model boats, special exhibitions and an inventive shop. Some of the boats were closed because it was off season, but there was still plenty to see.  more »

  • An interesting and versatile museum, one of the best in Turku. A lot of information about the history of shipwreck. The entry ticket paid 9 euro, worth the money. Also available is a two-day bracelet, which also has a museum on the ship. The museum also has a nice restaurant.
  • Very impressive. A large amount of the exhibits were hands on, which I found to be unique and a big bonus to the museum. The museum covers all aspects of Finnish maritime history and incorporates technology very well. There are also around 5 or 6 ships that you can go on and look through as part of the museum.
