Estonian Maritime Museum

The Estonian Maritime Museum is located in Fat Margaret, an old cannon tower. Its exhibition provides an excellent overview of Estonia as a maritime country. Over four floors you will see a variety of items related to the sea – old-fashioned diving and fishing equipment, various items found on the sea bed, maritime charts and more. The museum also has a remarkable collection of model ships, from old sailing boats to modern submarines. We also allow  braver visitors onto the roof to enjoy the view of the Old Town and the sea.

    Enjoyable with a great view at the top!

    Unexpected great find! We walked in out of curiosity and it was great! Very informative, lots of interesting maritime history, and a lovely roof top cafe with a view of the harbor.

    A very nice venue that covers the maritime history of Talinn, one of the principle trading cities of the Hanseatic League.

    This has to be the best museum in Tallinn!

    No, I didn't visit them all. But...the Maritime Museum is really a fine museum. Even if you are not a maritime buff you will find this very informative. They've gone to great lengths to make it...
