The Vrouw Maria was a 18th century Dutch vessel that sank in Finnish waters on its way to Saint Petersburg bearing a precious cargo destined for the Empress Catherine the Great of Russia.

An interactive, real-time, virtual reality simulation of the Vrouw Maria shipwreck has been created as part of the exhibition Spoil of Riches – Stories of the Vrouw Maria and the St. Michel held at the Maritime Museum of Finland located in the grand Maritime Centre Vellamo in Kotka.

The exhibition is open from 25 April until 02 December 2012.
