Navigation markers

Replicas of 17 different kinds of navigation markers from the golden age of archipelago seafaring (1842- 1891) have been re-erected by volunteers. The original navigation markers were predominantly located in the southern section of the Archipelago of Turku. The replicas have been located in such a way that leisure boaters can get a flavour of the cultural history of the archipelago as they pass through the Museum Passage. The navigation markers also direct light marine traffic away from international shipping channels.
