The Seaplane Harbour runs its day camps four times a year, during the school holidays (in October, March, June and August). Each camp will last three days and be held in the Estonian and Russian languages. The exciting and rich programme will include guided activities, visits to other museums and interesting guests in the Seaplane Harbour. And, of course, there will also be time left for playing and crafts. The day camps are generally related to the seasonal exhibition in the museum; however, in periods between exhibitions, our focus is on the sea and the permanent exhibition.
The second Sunday of every month is a Family Sunday in the Seaplane Harbour. All grown-ups and children are welcome; there will be programme activities between noon and 4 p.m.
The Family Sundays are free for all museum guests who have purchased the ticket.
Traditional yearly events:
The Night of Museums opens on a Saturday evening in May. The Maritime Museum, like other museums, will be open for longer and free of charge.
On 1 June we celebrate International Children’s Day with a rich programme. There will be many activities available in the outdoor area of the Seaplane Harbour, and children will also get free admission to the museum ships.
The second Sunday of November is Father’s Day. Your visit to the museum will be spiced up with exciting extra activities and programmes. Traditional Father’s Day pancakes will be served in the café.
The summer will be ended by the Night of Ancient Bonfires. A big bonfire will be lit in the outdoor area of the Seaplane Harbour, and there will be a number of performers.
Check the calendar for further information on upcoming family events.
