‘A Seaful of Excitement’, the permanent exhibition
On 11 May 2012, we opened a new exhibition in the historical Seaplane Hangar of the Seaplane Harbour. This three-level world (the underwater, surface and air levels) is meant for the entire family and contains numerous interesting exhibits. The ‘stars’ of the exhibition are the Lembit submarine, a Short 184 seaplane and the Maasilinn ship, one of Estonia’s oldest ship wrecks. Also on display are sail boats, ice boats, historical vessels, a large selection of naval mines and other naval equipment.
In addition to the exhibits there are interactive games, a cinema, a museum shop and Café/Restaurant MARU awaiting you. Outdoors you can visit the steam-powered icebreaker Suur Tõll, other museum ships on the quay (in summer), the children’s playground or just walk by the sea.
Besides the permanent exhibitions, there is almost always a seasonal exhibition in both of our buildings.
