  • Nice Museum, most satisfied with the part about the history of Åland, the modern art-part was boring and to times a little pervert. Nice models of different ferries, exciting older items from Åland's cultural life and stuffed birds. There were funny historical fairy tales to read for the kids, as well as a 3D puzzle of a lighthouse tower. The schoolchildren said they liked the visit.

  • This museum is quite small and has some interesting art work. There are traditional pieces and some very odd modern pieces. Its worth a quick look.  more »
