Åland Hunting & fishing museum - Entrance

The Åland Hunting and Fishing museum is situated in a choice location by the sea at Eckerö Käringsund, next to the old fishing village and grey boathouses. The Åland Hunting and Fishing museum is a museum for the whole family.

The museum describes the Ålanders’ day-to-day life in former times – how people who were hunters and fishermen put food on the table and provided for their families. The exhibitions include everything to do with hunting, fishing and life in the archipelago, such as nets, barrels, sumps, boats, rya rugs, engines, sport fishing equipment, motor sledges, decoys, weapons, traps and trophies. Black and white photographs and texts complement the exhibits and describe life in a fishing village and market – how people hunted seals and fished with a seine. The museum also has a large collection of stuffed birds and animals representing Åland’s fauna.

A museum for the whole family
How big is a moose or a fully-grown seal? What do the birds in the forest and on the outskirts of the archipelago look like? At the museum children get to meet Örjan Taggelin, the moose, and Sälle Säl, the grey seal, who provide answers to the questions. At the children’s workshop you can draw and paint. Out of doors you can search for pearls and make your own necklace. In the children’s herring market you can time-travel and shop for herring, black bread, apples and salt wearing period clothing!

Access ramps both indoors and outdoors make the museum easily accessible for everybody.
