The Bomarsund Museum is situated in the old pilot house on Prästö island. There is a magnificent view over the Fortress of Bomarsund. In the museum you can see an exhibition about the history of the fortress.

The fortress of Bomarsund was once the most magnificent structure on the Åland islands. The fortress was originally constructed by the Russian military as an important outpost to the west. The fortress was destroyed during the Crimean War in 1854. Today, the ruins at Bomarsund tell of a large fortified area for which many great expectations were held.
