Inside the Fat Margaret Tower on four levels with the option to go right to the top to view the Old City. Worth spending time if interested in maritime history.

An interesting museum with some really good viking exhibits, but also asa you climb the stairs the past comes forwards through the ages to the modern maritime landscape of Talinn. Worth the climb for the view from the top if nothing else.

Exhibition is interesting and has good ship models however admission price is too high for me to be content about visiting. On the top is a good little bar but you cannot access it without the ticket.
