Seaplane Harbour (Estonian Maritime Museum)

The most exciting maritime museum in Europe is located in the Seaplane Harbour!
The historical seaplane hangar displays about 200 items: a submarine called Lembit, a century-old icebreaker Suur Tõll, a seaplane called Short 184, the remains of the oldest ship found in Estonia, and much more.

There is also a cafe MARU and a museum shop.

Going globe-trotting in a submarine, taking pictures in navy costumes, an aquarium, simulators, flying paper airplanes, a children's corner with drawing tools, building blocks, and a sailboat, and an outdoor playground – programmes and materials meant for independent visits are playful and broaden the horizon of children and adults alike.
