The Museumship Pommern
The only four-masted merchant sailing ship in the world still in its original state. Will open to the public again in May 2019 with a completely new visitor experience!
The Pommern is the only four-masted merchant sailing ship in the world still in its original state. She is a typical cargo carrier, built 1903 in Scotland and bought by the Åland shipowner Gustaf Erikson in 1923. Pommern has carried timber from Scandinavia, saltpetre from Chile and grain from Australia. Her last commercial voyage was done in 1939 and since 1952 Pommern has been a museum ship.
The exhibition 'Pommern – 100 days under sail' will make the ship come alive with the crew’s own stories. It will be an exciting experience based on real events, where the visitors get to explore the ship and sense the presence of her elusive crew.
Today the ship is owned by the Town of Mariehamn, but is managed by the Åland Maritime Museum Trust.
