A museum must be a calm and sacred place. It must have many walls for numerous masterpieces: paintings, engravings, frescoes, mosaics…. It must have high ceilings to allow gigantic statues from ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, or Mesopotamia to be placed here and there. You cannot run or jump in a museum, and of course you cannot touch its exhibits. Moreover, in some museums, you are not even allowed to take photographs. Right? Not always!
Would you like to:
- let your children run and jump in a museum (and even fly in a flight simulator)?
- visit a real submarine made in 1936?
- look at an antique submarine which had a hand engine?
- sit in a real navy anti-aircraft gun and even control it?
- go down to the engine room of a real icebreaker that broke ice in the Baltic Sea from 1914, and visit several navy ships nearby?
- drink a little champagne in a café surrounded by the sound effects of an air attack before inspection of the museum exposition?
If so, you should visit the Seaplane Harbour (Estonian Maritime Museum) in Tallinn, Estonia.
