There is so much to see (and read), that one could easily spend several hours here, especially in summer, when the various ships moored along the museums quayside can also be visited.
Forum Marinum offers something for everyone: there are exhibitions, both permanent and changing - and several museum ships to visit, including the famous Suomen Joutsen and the unique barque Sigyn.

Excellent museum, good information about the pharmacy, drugs used in the 18th & 19th centuries and about the house the apothecary lived in.
This lovely little museum (Pharmacy Museum and the adjourning Qwensel house) is usually only open in the summertime, but opened for Christmastide with a special exhibition of how the artisans spent Christmasses last.

This gem of a museum offers a quiet space to listen to Sibelius' music, learn more about his life, times and the development of musical instruments.
The museum also houses an impressive collection of musical instruments and its current exhibition was celebrating the international success of Finnish conductors.

Sundays the museum has art workshops (included into the entrance fee) which are very good and suitable for all ages!
The museum building is purpose-built as a museum and has very interesting architecture.
