Seaplane Harbour (Estonian Maritime Museum)

The most exciting maritime museum in Europe is located in the Seaplane Harbour!
About 200 authentic items are on display at the historical seaplane hangar: a submarine called Lembit, a century-old icebreaker Suur Tõll, a seaplane called Short 184, remains of the oldest ship found in Estonia, and much more. There is also cafe MARU and a museum shop.

Globe-trotting in a submarine, having your picture taken in a navy uniform, an aquarium, simulators, throwing paper airplanes, a children's corner with drawing tools, building blocks, an authentic sailboat, and an outdoor playground – programmes and materials meant for independent visits are playful and broaden the horizon of children and adults alike.

  • Great for adults and kids

    The museum was really beautiful and full of good content, some of them interactive. I really recommend if you have time in Tallinn to visit that place. I went with my husband, but especially if...

  • Worth a visit

    Definitely worth a visit even if just to go inside the submarine. Very close to the prison so worth combining the two. Nice cafe/rooftop area too.
