The last windjammer in original condition. Between the wars this ship made one voyage per year to Australia bringing grain to Europe. With a crew of only 24 young sailors, half of them teenagers. The 4-masted bargue is the biggest attraction in Mariehamn.

After going through this totally restored three mast ship you can understand what they did, how they served the developing world and what caused them to disappear.

I visited the POMMERN in Mariehamn. The ship offers a tremendous overview of how life has been 100 years, ago. Great movie where the real sailors experiences are still captures from them in person. Ship nicely in shape - seems like being ready to sail! Not only technical but a wealth of human stories making life of that time just... More

The Pommern is moored next to the museum and the price includes both. They have recreated the ship very well and it gives a good idea of what it looked like and how it was run. Well worth a visit.

Really nice and informative Museumship, where everyone will have at least something to see. Lot of old photos for example, but also many items that tells about the life of a sailor.

Really enjoyed and nice visit. Many displays and interactive stands inside the vessel. You can access, feel and touch the real life on board. Everything is in real good conditions and genuine. Make the visit during summertime with other happenings in town for best enjoy.
