Here the sea begins
The Forum Marinum Maritime Centre is a lively and versatile centre for maritime activities, comprising a national special maritime museum, and the Finnish Navy Museum.
In addition to being a maritime place of interest, the Forum Marinum is also a venue for meetings and public events. The Café Restaurant Daphne serves café delicacies and a tasty, varied buffet lunch. The Museum Shop offers maritime gifts and other articles, literature and high-quality textiles.
The museum provides several interesting temporary exhibitions during a year and displays also a very interesting
boat collection. The maritime centre has a considerable collection of museum vessels: two tall sail ships, four
naval ships and several smaller vessels, ranging from a steam harbour tugboat to a police boat. The museum ships are open
during the summer months only, while the exhibitions are open throughout the year.
