For a Finnish museum this is quite big and there are loads of things to see. Personally I am not at all interrested in boats and such but this museum was still interresting and if you are into maritime stuff I am sure this will be great. I wanted to visit because I wanted to see the seamonster exhibition but that wasn't really very good.

Especially the Ruotsinsalmen taistelut -section was superb. Also the ice-breaker Tarmo is worth checking. There are so much to see in the whole place that it is better to reserve at least 3 hours for the visit.

Very interesting museum and exhibitions. The icebreaker Tarmo was really interesting to see although it was quite monotonic. It is also rather cramped but that should not be a surprise. The exhibitions in the museum were well organized and interesting. There is also lots to see for kids.

New Fateful Svenksund exhibition was great, have to give 5/5 points for team who have done this modern exhibition! Loved the interactive map table, several items from the wreck and how exhibition was built up like under the see. Vellamo is also filled with excellent Basic exhibition and building itself it sight too. If you are in to sea, boats and ships - prepair to spend several hours here.

Very modern museum about boats and ships. There is quite good sample of finnish boatbuilding skills and how shipping evolved to this day. All those different kind of exhibitions are also very interesting. So, if you are interested in how people sail around the world and close to the coast, go to the Maritime museum. There is also stories about the history of the Kotka region.
