This museum opened in May 2012 so it is a new and renovated building. The building itself is seaplane harbor. The museum is part of the Estonian maritime museum and its "mission is to collect, preserve, and present the history of Estonian and international nautical equipment." From a personal point of view it is a very interesting museum. It is... More

Really interesting museum for everyone - you can go there alone, with children, with whole family, with grandparents, with friends etc. Estonian museums are so modern and innovative and you totally enjoy the visit.

So much to see and do and great value. Going on and in a submarine was a highlight, as was going aboard a working icebreaker.

This place is not so easily found, as it often is called "The Maritime Museum", and is located outside the usual city-maps handed out for free at the hotels. However, in "Tallinn thie week" there is agood map in the centre-fold, wher the location is shown: nortwest from the city-center. Pleas also note the name: "Lennusadam", which means water-plane-harbour.

You can explore the whole of the ice-breaker moored next to the museum. Very well preserved - see cabins, mess room, engine room all as would have been in service. Also outside is a mine-sweeper - you can climb on board but cannot go beneath deck. Also a number of patrol boats to look at. Inside British-built submarine 'Lembit' can... More

The museum, apart from being located in a former seaplane harbour, is very imaginatively laid out, making excellent use of space and providing good but not excessive descriptions of all the exhibits in English as well as Estonian. A highlight of the display inside the museum building is the submarine 'Lembit', built in the UK for Estonia in 1936 but... More
