This title - just a joke, certainly. By the way, there are several museums.
I liked it very much because of following:
1. Wave-style architecture of building - ver yimpressive. It is better to look at it from the hill - see my photo.
2. Around building - a lot of interesting things, like the oldest ice-breaker.
3. On the first floor in Boat Hall we saw the multi-seater sport kayak, which belonged to Australian Olympic team. This team took part in Olympic games 1952 in Finland, but lost a game. After games, according story by our museum guide, this sailor team had no money on return way. That is why they sold their boat to Finnish sport club.
4. I liked museum which contains information about steam ships XIX-XX centuries - parts of ships, models, sailor's closes, stories and history - it was interesting.
5. As far as I understand, there are various temporary exhibisions from time to time. May 2012 we saw exhibition devoted to Russian ships that sank off the coast of Finland in XVII century - these ships were full of treasures. Some of findings we represented in the museum.
Some exhibits in museums prepared especially for children.
