Museums

The museums in Åland have many interesting stories to tell. The exhibitions have everything from hunting, fishing and the dramatic postal route across the sea, to archipelago culture, fire engines and art history.

Most of the larger museums in Åland are open all year round whereas the smaller museums are closed in the winter. However, most can still be visited during the low season by prior arrangement.
