Marstal Maritime Museum is a wonderful place to visit if you like old sailing ships, maritime history and maritime paintings. Marstal.....and the harbor, was, and still is, a center for maritime activity. You can easily spend half a day at the museum. Volunteers are available to answer any questions you may have. A visit to the museum is a "must"... More
