    Interesting museum
    One of the best museum in Tallinn. There are a lot of things to see. You can test yourself by playing different simulators. You can go into submarine, fly a seaplane on a flight simulator or take your picture in a navy uniform.

    A great time!
    Spacious, interesting! A lot to learn, explore and spend a few hours having fun! Clean, well organised, great for children and adults! The way it has been thought is brilliant, makes it a real great destination while visiting Tallin! The submarine and the plane models are really a great attraction!

    Submarines, boats and seaplanes it has them all
    The museum is bus ride away from the city centre , the 73 from opposite Fat Margaret's tower gets you there in just under 10 minutes. Once there you are in for a treat. Anyone who has the slightest interest in things nautical will be in for a treat. The main exhibit is of course the Lembit. There are also craft from all areas of Estonian nautical pastimes including ice yachts and an Ice breaker. When we were there a special section of Venice brough that city to life. A must do place , when in Tallinn.

    What a wonderful place
    Brought here by the dotto train. The driver (assume he is a fan) gave us a comprehensive history of the boats outside then toodvus inside to see the exhibits. A wonderful place where so much more time needs to be spent!

    You must go here
    You must go here! What a great facility. The displays are superb and interactive. The history of the buildings' renovation, the various maritime items on display, and interactive activities makes for a superb way to spend 3 hours. The visit to the sub, torpedo display and sea mines highlight the technology of the WW times. The visit is educational and fun. You will spend more time here than you budget for if you are a multi-venue sightseeing day trip.

    Stellar Surprise
    This was not at the top of Mt list . I was wrong. This museum is housed in a repurposed seaplane hanger, which itself is fascinating as the first structure of interconnecting concrete dome’s with no internal support. The museum lays out the history of all things nautical in esto and beyond. There’s even a model and explanation of a confederate submarine. The exhibit is dominated by the submarine Lembit which you can explore on deck & below. There’s a flight simulator and many hands on experiences for kids that adults will have fun was well. Don’t mi it. Easy access on bus # 73 from center if Tallinn

    ‘It’s very informative as they divulge all the nautical history in Estonia and surrounding countries.’
    Bus Number 73 will take you to the entrance of the museum or you an easily take a taxi or bolt/Uber to the museum. It’s £15 per adult to enter the museum but it’s completely worth it as you could easily spend 2-3 hours here. You’re unable to purchase tickets online, but you can buy them at the ticket desk upon arrival and no reservation is required. The museum is spread out over three huge hangars and has low lighting with multiple levels. It’s very informative as they divulge all the nautical history in Estonia and surrounding countries. There’s a good mix of interactive exhibits (flight simulator, shooting game), so it will keep the kids interested! It was pleasant surprise that they have a Lembit Submarine which you can explore inside and out. They have a small cafe on site offering snacks and drinks, but no food or drinks are allowed inside the exhibition. Overall, an extensive museum which is well worth the money and fun for adults and children.

    A great day exploring the maritime history
    A great exhibition with lots of interactive bits for children and adults. We also included the interiors of the two boats in the harbour, which were worth visiting. The highlights were the submarine in the main hanger and the ice breaker in the harbour, which both offered a lot of insight into the history. The hanger itself is also very interesting and the cat walk on the second floor gives a great view of the boats and exhibitions below. There is also a fun play park for children outside.

    Superb interactive museum with stunning submarine as the centre piece. Lots to see, read and learn
    Superb maritime museum with pre ww2 British built submarine as the centre piece. Lots of interactive elements to learn about the military history and modern sea faring. Lots of exhibits, which mix military with more benign forms of sailing. Fun for kids as well as lots to read and interact with if you are an adult. The mega submarine is a stunning site and to walk around it and then go inside is very cool. Fascinating history from being British built before the war for Estonia and ending up in ww2 with the Germans and later the communist Russians. Stunning use of the seaplane hanger, with sea plane hanging from the ceiling! Walk around outside and board a series of military fast boats. Hop on and off bus goes here but not too bad a trek on good paths from the old town if you want to burn some calories. Excellent value for money. Nice cafe and gift shop and clean toilets. Very well done.

We absolutely loved this museum. We got a taxi from our hotel & the museum staff were kind enough to organise a return taxi for us. The museum is housed in a purpose built hangar, which is worth the entrance price alone. We visited oi a cold December day & there were a few people there but it wasn't crowded,. This was beneficial as it meant we were able to explore the submarine exhibit without queuing. There is a great deal to see, coupled with a lovely coffee shop. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

A short walk from the Old Town 1.7km and a great attraction. I even got to go into an old submarine and at 6’2” that was a squeeze. Lots of interesting things to see.

We spent a good 3-4 hours exploring the museum. A large range of well-presented exhibits, with just the right amount of supporting information.
The café/restaurant was excellent.

Interesting naval museum, and from what I could see, in particular if you have children. It has several interactive activities, and the ticket price is not that expensive (it's not cheap either). At the time of writing this, the price of the ticket included visiting the submarine that's in the museum - the most interesting part... Unless you are claustrophobic.

A great place to visit for a few hours during your trip to Tallinn. The museum is located on the sea-side within a restored old hangar. The displays are interesting with the crown jewel being the Lembit submarine, which you can explore from the inside with great audio guides located inside the submarine.

Interesting museum. Not usually the sort I’d head for but my other half wanted to go into the Lembit submarine. It’s a well organized museum with lots of historical information. What’s also impressive is the redevelopment of the building.

15€ entry is quite a lot, but was really interesting. Got to go inside an actual submarine, and a lot of other exhibits that were well explained. Good for 2-3 hours, and also had a good café
