The Estonian Maritime Museum
The Estonian Maritime Museum collects, preserves, studies, and introduces the history of Estonian maritime culture and affairs. Two esteemed permanent exhibitions of the museum are located in the historic Fat Margaret tower and the Seaplane Harbour. Fat Margaret’s interactive exhibition is suitable for the whole family and exhibited in the extensively renovated Great Coastal Gate complex. It tells the history of Estonian seafaring from the Middle Ages to modern times. The logical way to continue this is to take a 20-minute walk to the Seaplane Harbour, which hosts an extremely interactive and large-scale exhibit on the maritime technology of the twentieth century. Temporary exhibitions are also shown at the Seaplane Harbour, and a Marina is operating.
