We forget so easily with how few tools people travelled the seas and yet went everywhere. This gives a good impression but is limited of course.

It was nice to visit the old school of maritime, where my grandfather did study and later work as principal. The museum has large collection of experience on people working in sailing ships in the 18th and early 19th centuary. Interesting, really.

The Maritime Museum of Rauma is a small but very high quality museum. The exhibit never changes, but covers a large portion of Raumas naval past with souvenirs from far-away lands, models of ships, maps, interactive infopoints and a fully equiped naval simulator. The simulator is located upstairs and can be used with the help of the friendly staff. Truly... More
