Organisation

The Estonian Maritime Museum collects, preserves, studies, and introduces the history of Estonian maritime culture and affairs.

Our mission is to promote the people’s knowledge about, respect for, and love of the sea. We do it by valuing responsibility, bold ideas, cooperation, and openness.

We are an employee- and family-friendly employer and a memory institution that also fulfils the users’ expectations and needs. By offering experiences to both domestic and foreign visitors, we are also increasing Estonia’s popularity as a culture tourism destination.

In April 2017, the Estonian Maritime Museum began to operate as a foundation and is the leading museum in the maritime field. The Estonian Maritime Museum is led by Member of the Management Board Urmas Dresen.

Exhibitions
Two esteemed permanent exhibitions of the museum are located in the historic Fat Margaret tower and the Seaplane Harbour. Fat Margaret’s interactive exhibition is suitable for the whole family and exhibited in the extensively renovated Great Coastal Gate complex. It tells the history of Estonian seafaring from the Middle Ages to modern times. The logical way to continue this is to take a 20-minute walk to the Seaplane Harbour, which hosts an extremely interactive and large-scale exhibit on the maritime technology of the twentieth century. Temporary exhibitions are also shown at the Seaplane Harbour, and a Marina is operating.
