The small museum is certainly telling a story and a wonderful one too! Go to this beutifull Island of Aeroe and go the biggest city Marstal there you will get an overview of how the sea can tribute to grow of an industry. A pity that so few go by this Island. Really worth a visit.

Not too far away in History Marstal was a power center for Danish and European commercial freight shipping. Schooners and later small powered freighters carried cargo all over the world. Bringing things to modelsize often helps understanding, and the fact that this shipping adventure originates from a mere 4000 population town certainly makes the story almost model size and very...

A visit at Marstal Søfartsmuseum is a must, when you come to Ærø. It will give you a view into the life on the Sea for the last 500 Years. And of course you also need to read the chronicle about the birth of the modern Denmark, a novel by Carsten Jensen, which also give life to Marstal.

The problem is that there are almost no English translations of the Danish explanations throughout the museum. Of course, that's not an issue if you read Danish. But I... More

Great museum. Only problem is you need hours to get through it all. Or do as we did: Go back twice. Great display of model ships, old engines, and a thorough documentation of the naval history of Ærø and Marstal
