Welcome to The Cultural History Museum of Åland. In the completely renewed main exhibition you can follow Åland’s story, from the first seal-hunters, who set foot on these rocky islands, to today’s global and multi-cultural society. The exhibition is divided up chronologically – prehistory, the medieval period, the era of the great powers, the 1800s and the 1900s – guiding you step by step through 7500 years of Åland’s history. The exhibition tells of both dramatic events and everyday life, of toil and festivities. Welcome!

I liked the displays of local exhibits, which were well done, and well labelled. Not so keen on the paintings.

The permanent exhibition needs some renewal to attract visitors. Good variety of other exhibitions though.

There is so much to see in this museum/gallery that it can take a good few hours to go through and it in well worth taking the time to browse in detail. The gallery is small but gives a good overview of the remoteness of...More
