It was a wonderful experience to find your shop in the middle of the evening of this Christmas holidays. First the location is beautiful, second your selection of items is amazing. I purchased 2 chess sets and 3 Christmas Jim Shore tree ornaments; I just love them all. My wide also found plenty to purchase, from art to jewelry.... too many presents opportunities there!! LOL!! Just to let you know, it was nice to set the 2 chess sets in our showcase shelves; I look forward to come back to Angers to get more!!! The owner is also a very entertaining sales person who knows how to discuss his products and patiently explains all the details we might want to know of. Furthermore, he took the trouble to fill in the tax refill forms for us and to explain its whole process upon returning at the airport. I just have to remember to own a lot of money to get there again, as I could just buy the whole shop!!! LOL!! :-D :-D :-D

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.
