THE SAILING SHIP POMMERN IS CLOSED
Welcome back 1 may 2023
The Åland Maritime Museum is open daily 11-16
The life on a tall ship is hard, but at the same time an adventure that will stay in your memory forever. Onboard Pommern you will hear the young Johan, merely 16 years of age, experience his first voyage around the globe. Johan has signed on as a deck hand and you eavesdrop on how he finds life onboard. How he handles the crossing-the-line ceremony, the hard work and how he survives his first storm.
How does a ship’s rat experience a round-the-world voyage on a tall ship? Can a rat have secrets that the rest of the crew don’t know about? Yup – if you trust the children’s guide, Ruby the ship’s rat, who shows the kids around the Pommern. The children’s soundtrack “Ruby’s voyage” is an audio tale written by the award-winning author Karin Erlandsson.
Pommern is an accessible museum ship. To visit Pommern all visitors will cross the bridge from the museum’s terrace. The bridge leads down on deck via a staircase and a lift. This means that even people in wheelchairs and people with strollers will easily be able to come on onboard.
