Re: Estonian Maritime Museum: museum ships
there is also a "small" exhibits museum at the harbour end of the town walls, we went to SUR TOLL at her old home over the town hall bunker/ferry landing when the ferries were the old hydrofoils! all the engine castings have GLASGOW firms solidly cast on, we were told there was also a submarine as part of the museum but it was in the naval yard and was unable to visit at the time!
Tallinn , especially the old town has gone from an old style communist town with virtually nothing for sale in the shop to the party capital of Europe, roads have been dozed through the town walls and the once empty streets are now full of cars.
The Estonian Maritime Museum in Tallinn presents in the The Seaplane Harbour a large collection of former ships of the Estonian navy and coast guard. These ships are former Finnish, German, Norwegian, Russian, Swedish, and USCG ships. The largest ship is the large icebreaker Suur Tőll (completed in 1914).
