It’s a cool castle but you can’t get in probably for safety reasons.

Nice intro to the fascinating history of the area. Slightly scary and steep stairs inside to get to the top but a must-do. Definitely worth a look and good value for money. Oh and you can practice your hand at archery for a small fee ?

An interesting castle. Reasonably priced. 30Kn adults 20 Kn kids. Great views inside, a long video on the history but the up and down to get up the largest tower could do with a lot more organisation. Literally it is all go one way until a gap which can make a long wait. Would be 4 stars except for this. Worth putting up with and definitely worth a visit.

The fortress was built when Dalmatia came under the protectorate of the Republic of Venice. Today, you can see the walls connecting the three towers of the fortress. On the highest tower is an observation deck with a beautiful view of the sea and yachts. The stairs inside the tower are steep and narrow, it can fit one person, so you had to wait to go up. Nearby there is a soccer stadium for 1,000 spectators. The tower is now mostly used for cultural events. Also this tower is often used by filmmakers. Admission is paid.

Seaplane Harbour Museum

The Seaplane Harbour is the newest and one of the most exciting museums in Tallinn. It tells stories about the Estonian maritime and military history. The museum’s display, that comprises of more than a couple of hundred large exhibits, revitalizes the colourful history of Estonia.

British built submarine Lembit weighing 600 tones is the centrepiece of the new museum. Built in 1936 for the Estonian navy, Lembit served in the World War II under the Soviet flag. It remained in service for 75 years being the oldest submarine in the World still in use until it was hauled ashore in 2011. Despite its long history, Lembit is still in an excellent condition offering a glimpse of the 1930s art of technology.

Another exciting attraction is a full-scale replica of Short Type 184, a British pre-World War II seaplane, which was also used by the Estonian armed forces. Short Type 184 has earned its place in military history by being the first aircraft ever to attack an enemy’s ship with an air-launched torpedo. Since none of the original seaplanes have survived, the replica in Seaplane Harbour is the only full-size representation of the aircraft in the whole World.

Simulators mimicking a flight above Tallinn, around-the-world journey in the yellow submarine, navigating on the Tallinn bay make this museum heaven for kids or adventurous adults.

Seaplane Harbour operates in architecturally unique hangars built almost a century ago, in 1916 and 1917, as a part of Peter the Great sea fortress. These hangars are the World’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size. Charles Lindbergh, the man who performed the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean, landed here in 1930s.

On the outdoor area visitors can tour a collection of historic ships, including the Suur Tõll, Europe's largest steam-powered icebreaker.
