Estonian Maritime Museum, Tallinn Reviews
This museum is housed within the large stronghold in the old town wall called Fat Margaret. the museum is a multi-story building with lots of interesting exhibits. when you reach the top of the tower you can climb out on top of it and survey the surrounding views which mostly look over the post area just outside of old town.
Worth a trip mainly to visit the historic Fat Margaret tower. The exhibit itself is okay, but not that interesting to a casual visitor. There's a rooftop terrace where you can get a great 360 view of Tallinn and take some photos. Overall I would visit only if you are a maritime history enthusiast or have some time to kill; otherwise, the main exhibit at the Seaplan Harbour is much more worth the time.
Interesting and informative. A lot of artifacts is related, in fact, to the history of Russian navy, since Tallinn (Reval) played an important part as a naval base during the Russian Empire times. So those who're interested in Russian Navy history shouldn't miss it.
Very educational but.now closed for renovation. Go to Lennusadam instead.
I am not sure how this museum has such high reviews. We went here by mistake thinking we were going to the much larger and more impressive maritime museum down by the harbor. ***NOTE VERY LITTLE OF THIS MUSEUM IS IN ENGLISH*** There also wasn't anything large/impressive or interactive inside, just some tiny boat replicas and old boat parts. The only good thing about this museum is the rooftop view overlooking the city since we went in the evening...so if a city view is worth 6 euros to you, then yeah i'd say you should visit...just don't waste your time trying to go through the museum if you don't speak estonian or russian
