This is a large, well located museum. It is a short distance from Turku Castle. You can get here via public bus from the market square (E2.50 each way). There is also ample free parking. There are lots of beautiful wooden boats, many models of ships, and more outboard motors than you will ever want to see. We paid the fee to visit the ships moored on the river, but really had had enough before we got to them.
If you are or are with someone who really likes maritime museums, you can plan on a long visit. The restaurant is not as expensive as it may sound. The 18 Euro buffet includes a table with a variety of cold seafood. If you are willing to skip that and have only the warm buffet and salad table, it will cost less than 10 Euros. The food was good and helped sustain us through the rest of our visit.
