Seaplane Harbour (Estonian Maritime Museum)

The most exciting European museum is located in the Seaplane Harbour, where the exhibition in the historical seaplane hangars tells you stories from under the water, on the water and above the water.

The dignified icebreaker Suur Tõll stands by the pier; in 2014, it celebrates its 100th birthday. The ship has been restored to its original exterior and interior state. Laevaköök, which serves dishes from a 100-year-old menu of the ship's crew, is open during the summer months.

There's a wonderful view overlooking the Port of Tallinn from the Seaplane Harbour. You can end your day on the outdoor terrace of café Maru or in the nautical-themed museum shop.
