The Forum Marinum Maritime Centre is a lively and versatile centre for maritime activities, comprising a national special maritime museum, and the Finnish Navy Museum.
In addition to being a maritime place of interest, the Forum Marinum is also a venue for meetings and public events. The Cafe Restaurant Daphne serves cafe delicacies and a tasty, varied buffet lunch. The Museum Shop offers maritime gifts and other articles, literature and high-quality textiles.
The museum provides several interesting temporary exhibitions during a year and displays also a very interesting boat collection.

The museum ships are open during the summer months only, while the exhibitions are open throughout the year.
