THE MUSEUM SHOP HAVSBODEN
You can find anything from fishing lures, local handicrafts, souvenirs, postcards to posters in our museum shop, Havsboden. Here you may also find books about fishing and hunting as well as nature, the history of the Åland Islands and sights. For those wishing to leave the museum with a new cuddly friend, we also sell stuffed animals, including squirrels, foxes, pikes – to only name a few. Keychains, magnets and mugs are also included in our museum shop’s extensive supply. You are of course more than welcome to visit the museum shop, no entrance fee needed! The museum shop is open during the museum’s opening hours.
We make it a priority for everyone to be able to enjoy Åland’s Hunting and Fishing Museum and we are constantly working to improve our accessibility.
For those visiting us with disabilities: The museum is accessible for persons with mobility disabilities. You are able to access the museum by ramps both inside and outside. Inside the museum, there is also a toilet accessible for persons with disabilities. The ramps inside the museum are pretty steep, however, we may assist you if you need any help. You can access almost the entire museum by wheelchair. Any personal assistants or companions do not need to pay any entrance fee. Assistance and guide dogs are also welcome to visit the museum and need not pay any entrance fee.
Parking close to the entrance: We have a parking spot dedicated to those with disabilities. It is located next to the outdoor ramp, right side of the road if you are travelling in the direction from Käringsundsvägen. Turn to the right after the three flag poles. There you will find a parking sign indicating the parking spot.
Doors: We, unfortunately, do not have an automatic door opener, but you may ring the doorbell next to the entrance in order to have our personnel come and hold the door open for you! Inside the museum, all doors are open. There are almost no thresholds in the museum.
In the reception, there is a hearing amplifier.
Map over the museum: We have a map over the museum, showing all the different exhibitions, which may help you make any preparations before visiting us. There are ramps connecting the level differences of the museum.
