This is an interesting museum about shipping and navigation. There is something for everybody there. Our teens loved the navigation simulator Jenny. I loved the ballast park behind the museum building. The park is planted with ballast plant species found in Satakunta Province.

It was nice to visit the old school of maritime, where my grandfather did study and later work as principal. The museum has large collection of experience on people working in sailing ships in the 18th and early 19th centuary. Interesting, really.
