Estonian Maritime Museum

The maritime museum is located in a 4-storey fortified tower called ‘Fat Margaret’, built between 1510 and 1529. It has displays of artefacts, photographs and documents relating to ship-building, navigation, lighthouses, fisheries and diving, but it most important for its role in marine archaeology in the Baltic, where most wrecked vessels are well preserved. It has its own research ship, Mare, which is fitted with sonar apparatus. The museum also includes the submarine Lembit, built at Barrow-in-Furness in 1936, and the icebreaker Suur Toll, built at Stettin in 1914.
