Exhibition: North Star, Southern Cross
The main exhibition at the Maritime Museum of Finland covers themes such as navigation on dangerous seas, the life of seamen, maritime trade, and travelling. Winter navigation and ice are also covered to remind us of the wintry conditions of Finland and the huge change that icebreakers brought to Finnish seafaring.
The exhibition presents items recovered from underwater wrecks like the St. Michel which sank in 1747. The magnificent 7.5-metre scale model, in turn, brings the passenger ship S/S Arcturus and its dramatic phases to life.
