Underwater Warfare Exhibition 

Finland’s less known naval defence history is displayed in Forssa

Forum Marinum Maritime Centre has opened the Underwater Warfare Exhibition at DA-Group’s headquarters in Forssa.

Finland has over a hundred-year experience in underwater warfare, its threats and development of defence methods. The Forum Marinum Foundation has a vast collection of underwater warfare items dating back from the time before Finland’s independence all the way to the present day. There are three main themes: sea mines and minesweeping, torpedos, and submarine 

The core element of the collection consists of over 80 naval mine items, originating in a collection of underwater warfare equipment put together by the Navy for training purposes since the 1920s. This exhibition also includes mine detection and sweeping equipment, diver operations devices, various torpedoes as well as materials related to torpedo development and warfare. The prior naval mine collection was assembled in 1996 based on the initiative of Commander (ret.) Eero Auvinen as well as with the support of the Navy and individual sponsors. 

The cooperation between Forum Marinum, being also the host of the Finnish Navy Museum, and DA-Group enables to establish the exhibition based on museum collection. The objective of the project is two-fold: to display this unique material and to preserve it in appropriate conditions. Forum Marinum manages and maintains the Underwater Warfare Exhibition.
