Modern Seaplane Harbour welcomes visitors
There are many dignified and unique buildings in Tallinn. One of them is the seaplane hangars complex that was built in 1917. It was unique because at that moment it was the largest monolith reinforced concrete shell structure.
These hangars have seen different times, at one point even been about to collapse, but now they have a new life, because the Seaplane Harbour, a part of the Maritime Museum was opened this year. It is a museum with an extraordinary architectural solution, where one can spend the entire day without being bored. In the museum, anyone can test himself in different aspects of the sea- being a rower in the world’s first submarine or a pilot on a hydroplane. Furthermore, this museum gives a good overview of the local maritime history and provides an opportunity to meet true legends such as the first Estonian submarine Lembit that celebrates its 80th jubilee, or hydroplane Short 184, the home of which was in these hangars during the 20ies and 30ies of the previous century.
It definitely is a museum that we recommend visiting while in Tallinn, because a good experience is ensured for anyone who loves the sea!
