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.

  • This museum is worth seeing to see how it has been restored and constructed from the original building. The exhibition to us was limited and although we are not sorry that we visited we do feel at 14 ...  more »
  • Very cool Museum. Once every few months to visit with his daughter. City guests present. Always delighted. Cool, that new exposure.

  • Quite a pleasant place to walk around even without a ticket - you can access the outdoor part of the museum for free (although you can't enter the ships), and see the different ships and weaponry. Signs throughout the museum are informative and very interesting. However, there is a lack of benches. I would like to sit down and admire the boats!
  • 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!

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
