Sea Monsters

Thus 20.6.2019 - 17.1.2021 Time 10:00 - 17:00

Maritime Centre Vellamo, Tornatorintie 99, 48100 Kotka

When the earth was flat and the seas teemed with monsters… The monsters of old naval charts have been brought to life and made concrete: Come in, explore and play!

The Sea Monsters exhibition will take you to the dangerous waters of the Carta marina map from 1539. In this exhibition, historical facts meet mythical sea monsters. Come face to face with a giant sea serpent and a bloody sea cucumber, spot a sea bishop, discover the primordial sea through a diving bell, visit Dr. Pontoppidian’s museum of strange creatures and study the ancient sea routes and navigation devices. Poems and stories lured ancient seafarers to unknown worlds – where will they lead you? Don’t fall off the edge of the world!
