The Lighthouse, our new mobile guide system

The Guide Compass remains fully functional, but will in near future be replaced by a new mobile guide: The Lighthouse.

The Guide Compass is a personal guide to the exhibitions. It can be accessed by the visitors' own mobile devices. The Guide Compass functions in the museum's wireless visitor network, on any device equipped with a WiFi connection and a browser. The Guide Compass is bilingual (Finnish and English).

Our new mobile guide system The Lighthouse will, as it is being developed, replace both Guide Compass and old "Information ligthouses". For the transition period, old systems remain fully functional.

The "lighthouses" are computer terminals that provide access to detailed information on local and global maritime history, a selection from the museum's picture collections and digitized archival documents.
