Fat Margaret

This main exhibition of the Estonian Maritime Museum is accommodated in a 16th-century artillery tower called Fat Margaret. The tower, once a part of Tallinn’s defence system, hosts a permanent exhibition on four floors and seasonal exhibitions about Estonia’s maritime history: boat and ship building, ports, navigation and lighthouses.

A display of archaic anchors is available in the inner courtyard, and the roof of Fat Margaret tower offers a spectacular view of the port and Old Town. A small coffee corner and a museum shop with souvenirs are open in the foyer.

See also our seasonal exhibition in Fat Margaret, ‘Viking-Era Treasures in Estonia’.
