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.
