The Estonian Maritime Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve and research the diverse and multifarious material about Estonia’s maritime history and culture, and present it to the general public.
We aim our activities at increasing people’s knowledge about, respect for and love of the sea.
We want to carry on meeting the modern expectations and needs as a memory institution that in addition to collecting, preserving and researching Estonia’s cultural heritage also contributes to education and offers impressions to domestic and foreign guests, thereby highlighting Estonia as a destination of culture tourism.
In April 2017, the Estonian Maritime Museum began to operate as a foundation and be the leading museum in the maritime field.
Due to the festive period, we do have some exceptions in our opening times.
During Christmas, we are closed on December 23rd and 24th. As a special gift to our visitors, we are open on some Mondays, December 30th and January 6th.
