Fodor's Review

This museum is named for Augustin Ehrensvärd, the military architect who directed the fortification of the islands of Suomenlinna from 1748 until 1772, the year of his death. Exhibits include a model-ship collection and officers' quarters dating from the 18th century. Ehrensvärd's tomb is in the adjacent castle courtyard.
