Estonian Maritime Museum - Review
Located in the Fat Margaret Tower in the old town of Tallinn, the Estonian Maritime Museum showcases the history of navigation and ships used in the country and is part of the Seaplane Harbour museum that has a fine collection of real ships and seaplanes used in war.
The Fat Margaret Tower itself dates back to the 16th century and has a historic importance of its own. The view from the rooftop is the perfect way to end the visit.

Estonian Maritime Museum, Tallinn Reviews
The Estonian Maritime Museum is the institution for collecting, preserving, studying and presenting Estonian maritime culture (maritime history). Our mission is to promote knowledge about, respect for and love of the sea. The Museum was founded in Tallinn on the initiative of former captains and sailors in 1935. During its long history, the museum has moved on a number of occasions and since 1981, its main exhibition is located in the 500-year-old Fat Margaret tower in Tallinn Old Town. In May 2012, the Maritime Museum opened another exhibition place at the Seaplane Harbour. Today, the Maritime Museum is one of the largest museums in Estonia, and the most popular one — particularly thanks to the Seaplane Harbour exhibition
Amazing museum. Worth a visit of both Fat Margaret and the Seaplane Harbour!
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 Seaplane Harbour is much more worth your time.
Interesting museum but I liked more the historic building where the museum is located than the actual exposition. The fat margaret cannon tower was build more than 500 years ago to offer protection in the seaside. The tower has served a number of different functions throughout its history. It has been used a storehouse for gunpowder and weapons, as a prison and now, as a museum.
Unfortunately the museum is closed for renovations until August 2019 but the building is worth seeing from the outside.
