MUSEUM: Tallinn museum opens

One of the most innovative maritime museums in Europe opened recently in Tallinn, Estonia. It is housed in giant seaplane hangars, which were constructed in 1917 as part of the Russian defences of St Petersburg. The interactive displays included a replica of the Shorts 184 seaplane and the submarine Lembit (pictured), which was built in 1937 at Barrow by Vickers-Armstrongs for the Estonian Navy. The museum also has a number of floating exhibits, including naval vessels and the impressive 2,417gt, twin-funnel icebreaker Suur Tõll, which was completed in 1914.
