Café Byssan at the Åland Maritime Museum offers simple fare, such as coffee, soft drinks and ice cream. If you want something more substantial there are several good restaurants nearby.

Accessibility on board Pommern has undergone some major improvements. To visit the ship, visitors cross the bridge from the museum’s terrace. To come onboard Pommern there is a staircase and a lift, making it easier for wheelchairs and strollers.
Pommern has three decks accessible via stairs or a lift. The exhibition Pommern – 100 days under sail is an experience encompassing all three decks.
On the weather deck visitors can listen to a self-guided audio track for both children and adults. The audio-guide, included in the entry fee, can be controlled by hand if needed, and includes text as well as audio.
Free entry to the museum and the ship for personal assistants to disabled visitors.
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.
Accessibility has undergone big improvments onboard Pommern. To visit the ship 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.
