Renovated Seaplane Harbour is a new must-see in Tallinn. Some facts: Seaplane Hangars, where the maritime museum is located, were built in 1916-1917 and were the first ferro concrete buildings of that size in the world. In 2013 Seaplane Harbour was pronounced as Design Project of the year in Estonia.

At the same time it was shortlisted in two categories at the World Architecture Festival in Singapore. And another achievement – it’s nominated for European Museum of the Year Award 2014 (winner will be announced next May). Its main attractions are the submarine Lembit (built in 1937) and vintage steam icebreaker “Suur Tõll” (built in march 1914, exactly 100 years ago! And it still looks new). In Seaplane Harbour not only can you find a lots of truly unique artifacts but also lots of various interactive games – like flight or submarine simulation, shooting with air defense guns etc.
