The underwater archaeology experience room

The underwater archaeology experience room will introduce you to the fascinating underwater world through large interactive projected screens and U-Cat, Estonia’s very own underwater robot.

For the Maritime Museum, maritime archaeology has been one of the most important areas of research for decades. 2018 marks the passing of 40 years since the first studies were performed on the sea. Over the years, tens upon tens of ships have been searched for and found in the course of field work, exhibitions have been created, and articles and books have been written. Now, the visitors of the museum will see one of the most extensive endeavours of the recent years – the fascinating materials of the Arrows project, in which the Estonian Maritime Museum participated. At the core of the project was the creation of robotic systems of underwater archaeology to research the oceans.

The exhibition is exciting and enthralling – visitors can be acquainted with the working stages of underwater archaeology and the achievements of U-Cat on large projected touch screens. For the first time in the Estonian museum landscape, you can colour your own colouring sheet and scan it with a 4D scanner. The drawing will then appear on a wall projection and it can be moved.

The experience room is open from 6 December 2017 to 2 September 2018 at the Seaplane Harbour

Sponsors of the exhibitions: Estonian Research Council and the Ministry of Education and Research
