The audio tour at the Seaplane Harbour now tells the Estonian maritime history in ten languages. The audio tour introducing the permanent exhibition above and below water and in the air is a unique journey, accompanied by music which was composed for the tour by Sten Šeripov.
According to Krislin Kämära, Curator of Permanent Exhibitions at the Seaplane Harbour, the aim of the museum was to create an audio guide that cannot be found in any other museum in the world. ‘Through music, visitors of the museum will be told a memorable story about the Estonian maritime history. We are very proud of the recent addition of Mandarin Chinese to our audio guide. Estonia attracts increasingly more visitors from China and now we are able to share our rich maritime history with Chinese visitors in their mother tongue,’ said Kämära.
According to Aleksandr Konjušenko, creator of the technical solution of the audio guide, the creation process of the audio guide was very exciting, because they had no example to follow. They had to come up with all the unique solutions themselves and develop the technology from scratch. ‘Undoubtedly, the most engaging and time-consuming part of the project was creating the audio guide for submarine Lembit,’ said Konjušenko.
The audio tour is narrated by
Tambet Tuisk in Estonian,
Kirill Käro in Russian,
Tommi Korpela in Finnish,
Michael Haagensen in English
Kaspars Znotiņš in Latvian.
The tour is also available in French, German, Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese.
The audio tour lasts 40 minutes and the price for the tour is 2 euros. The narrated story and guidance accompanying the entire journey can be listened to through headphones. Up to two people can use one audio guide at a time by connecting two sets of headphones. Personal headphones can also be used with the audio guide.
