The Estonian Maritime Museum’s collections were established years before the museum was officially registered and opened in 1935. Since then, except in 1940−1959, the museum has been collecting maritime-related material in the form of objects, photographs, documents, drawings, charts, books, etc. The museum’s collections grow by means of gathering actions, donations and purchases.
There are approximately 90,000 items in the Maritime Museum’s collections.
