Specialty Museum Museum
Explore Estonia's maritime history at Lennusadam Seaplane Harbour, a museum that features a World War II-era submarine and many other ocean-related artifacts. Themed exhibits spread out over three floors tell of Estonia's strong relationship with the sea. Each floor pertains to a specific sector of maritime or naval history, focusing on the air, the sea, and beneath the sea. Seize the chance to see an icebreaker ship, a pre-World War II seaplane, and the recovered wreck of a 16th-century sailing ship. You can try your hand at piloting a plane, ship, or submarine yourself on one of the museum's simulators. Don't miss climbing aboard and seeing the inner workings of the Lembit, a submarine built in 1936 that served with the Soviet and then Estonian navies until 2011. See Lennusadam Seaplane Harbour and all Tallinn has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tallinn tourist route planner.

  • A well kept museum for almost all things dealing with the Nautical History of Estonia. Lots of exhibits to be seen and to learn about, in not only Estonian but English and Russian too. There is audio you can also listen to in those languages at a few of the exhibits. In addition to the things you can look at, children can interact with some of the exhibits like driving an RC boat, flying a simulated plane, watching a short film documentary, etc.
  • Great interactive exhibition. You even get to discover the insides of a century old ice breaker and an 80+ years old submarine. Took us a bit more than 4 hours to enjoy all the exhibits. Recommended if you never been to similar museum.
  • Great spacious aircraft hanger type building with well designed exhibition. Good use of interactive technology. Don't miss the Suur Toll Ship in the docks outside..the world's largest surviving steam powered ice breaker.
  • Such a cool museum. Lots of hands on stuff that entertains all ages. The building itself​ is reason enough to go. Definitely worth a couple hours. And makes a nice walk from Old Town!
  • Very interesting exhibit. Lots of Maritime exhibits. There is a submarine you can tour as well a number of coastal defense ships. Well worth the visit and admission price.
