About the exhibition
The Suomen Joutsen has an interesting history. It was built as a cargo ship in France in 1902 and was sold in the early 1920s as a training ship to the German merchant fleet. "The Duck" was bought as a training ship by the Finnish Navy in 1930. Later the ship was relocated to Turku and the first Finnish seamen´s school was opened on board. Since 1991, the ship has been a museum.
The exhibition illustrates the different stages of the ship´s history using objects, pictures, films and reminiscence. Apart from the construction, also the use and work culture of the ship has varied. Various working communities have lived on board and used the ship: seamen, marine soldiers, seamen students, teachers, and now finally museologists and the visitors of Forum Marinum.
The main part of the exhibition is in the exhibition room on the main deck, and additional parts of it are displayed in various places on the ship.
