Maritime Forums

The Maritime Forums of the Estonian Maritime Museum are captivating lecture, seminar or film events that have featured interesting speakers from Estonia and abroad (e.g. Aleksei Turovski, Andres Tarand, Geir Klover, David Vseviov, James Delgado, Alexandra Klingelhofer, Anatoly Sagalevich, Viktor Boyarsky and many others). The Sea Forums are held once or twice a month, last for up to two hours and are free of charge. The forums are mostly related to the museum’s seasonal exhibition.

This tradition of the Seaplane Harbour will continue in 2016. The atmospheric discussions on subjects concerning Estonian maritime culture will be waiting for the audience to speak along with the special guest. We will talk about different coastal communities: be they historical, modern, big, small, vertebrate or invertebrate. In the spring season 2016, the Sea Forums will feature speakers from Estonia and be moderated by Helene Urva, Curator of Education at the Maritime Museum.

The Maritime Forums of the spring season will be held in Estonian or Russian; lectures in English will be continued in the autumn season 2016.
