In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the Estonian Maritime Museum’s Fat Margaret and Seaplane Harbour are temporarily closed since March 1.
Museum shops are also closed, but those interested are served by the e-shop.
According to the director of the Estonian Maritime Museum Urmas Dresen, the opening of a new exhibition of Estonian naval and intelligence officer Bruno Linneberg at the Seaplane Harbour will also be postponed. “The recently published Estonian language book by Reet Naber and Arto Olli on this topic is already available to those interested, but the exhibition is awaiting the end of the restrictions. Along with the opening of the exhibition, the awarding of the authors of the works marked in the first competition for student works on Estonian maritime history must be postponed,” said Dresen.
There is a playground in the outdoor area of the Seaplane Harbour, and museum ships can be viewed from the quay. The marina accepts ships. Café Maru, which is open on the second floor of the hangars, offers lunch on-site from Monday to Friday from 11 am to 2 pm and the possibility to order delivery to home or to the office.
After the end of the restrictions, the exhibition “Unseen Oceans” of the American Museum of Natural History will be open at the Seaplane Harbour until April 25, and the exhibition “Baltic Sea in the World Ocean” will be open until July 18. Katrin Karu’s exhibition-sale “Waterway” will be exhibited in Fat Margaret until April 18.
