The Maritime Museum of Finland

The Maritime Museum of Finland is situated in the Maritime Centre Vellamo at the old City Port of Kotka.

At the Maritime Museum of Finland you can travel on the sea through time and place, on ships, at ports, in distant countries and on familiar shores. The fixed points of the voyage are the North Star of our northern sky and the Southern Cross of the southern hemisphere, which guide travellers both on the home waters and far-away oceans. Winter navigation and ice are also covered in the main exhibition. Icebreaker Tarmo in open during the summer season.

You can find information on Vellamo's exhibitions by visiting the profiles of the Maritime Museum of Finland, the Museum of Kymenlaakso and the Icebreaker Tarmo or www.merikeskusvellamo.fi
