The highly interactive Seaplane Harbour, literally, has 'tonnes' of reasons why it's the most popular museum in Estonia. 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, a 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. Until June 30 a temporary exhibition 'Operation Red Trek. Ensuring Estonian Freedom' is on display. It tells a thrilling story about the arrival of the British squadron in Tallinn and the events of the first months of the Estonian War of Independence, November 1918 - January 1919. Second temporary exhibition by Dutch multimedia artist Saskia Boddeke, called 'Sex & the Sea', is on display until January 19, 2020. Exhibition is about sailor's desire and yearning and it also includes Estonian original historical material.
