Why locals love it

The museum is located inside the seaplane hangars. It's truly unique as the first shell concrete structure ever built. Initially completed as part of Peter the Great’s Naval Fortress in 1916-1917 the museum now combines new and old, land and sea. You're even welcome to arrive at the harbour onboard your own vessel.

Why you should visit it

At this unique maritime museum in Northern Europe, you can experience the naval life on three levels – above, below and on the water. Submarine Lembit, the Suur Tõll steam icebreaker, the Short Type 184 seaplane, and other lifesize exhibits allow you to test yourself and learn more about the sea in a fun and interactive way.

Special tip

Tickets are €14/€7, but some attractions, like the big old steam boat are available for a separate fee of €6 as well.

Always great exhibitions, and the architecture of the building itself is already worth a visit!
