Since its opening in 2012, the Seaplane Harbour has been visited by as many as 1.25 million guests of all ages. We are very happy about such an active interest but inevitably, it has left its marks on our building. Therefore, the Seaplane Harbour will undergo a programme of repairs. We shall do some necessary refurbishment and also tidy up our exhibition.
For that reason the building will be closed to guests between 30 January 2017 and 27 February 2017.
The Seaplane Harbour will reopen its doors to guests on 28 February 2017.
Our museum’s exhibitions in Fat Margaret artillery tower will remain open though, and everyone is invited to the exhibition ‘Viking-Era Treasures in Estonia’. As usual, Fat Margaret also offers tours, museum lessons, birthday programmes and arrangements for festive events.
During that period, the steam-powered icebreaker Suur Tõll will be open by prior arrangement.
In the framework of the memorial conference “The Heritage in 21st Century Europe of the Crimes Committed by Communist Regimes” organized by the Estonian Institute of Historical Memory in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Estonia in the framework of the Estonian Presidency in the Council of the European Union the exhibition “Communism in its Time” is to be opened in the Maritime Museum gunpowder magazine (Uus st. 37).
The Seaplane Harbour is renewing itself. between 30 January 2017 and 27 February 2017.
The Fat Margaret artillery tower will remain open!
