This modern museum is housed in architecturally unique seaplane hangar, which includes structures that were part of the Peter the Great Naval Fortress between 1916-1917. The authentic submarine Lembit from the 1930-s, the century-old steam-powered icebreaker Suur Tõll at the marina, a copy of Short 184 seaplane and many other life-sized exhibits are on display here. You'll get a chance to take part in maritime history, as well as interact with many hands-on exhibits. Audio guide in 10 languages available. Until January 19, 2020 a temporary exhibition by Dutch multimedia artist Saskia Boddeke, called 'Sex & the Sea', is on display. The exhibition is about sailors' desire and yearning and, it also includes original Estonian historical material. Second temporary exhibition '1944 - THE GREAT ESCAPE' is on display until June 30, 2020.
