Great eclectic local museum with some thought provoking collections. Maybe more for adults looking at things than children's interactive exhibits. There is a nice café too. Friendly helpful staff.

One of the most interesting museums I've ever visited. I'd say it's for age from 0-100, everyone will find something attractive here.

We came here with our kids and they enjoyed all parts of the museum. They enjoyed both the playground part of the exhibition as well as the permanent and the temporary exhibition. The service was top notch. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff that where easily available. The fact that this museum has a free entrance also helps a lot. Free museums are usually not this good. We did not try the food at the cafe so that is not a part of this review.

I came from Stockholm to enjoy the exhibition about Swedish fashion photography but I did not enjoy reading the information about pictures or the photographers because they were almost down on the FLOOR. One had to bend down to read. What experience! Who curated or suggested it should be replaced with a more COMPETENT one!

A very interested museum to all ages! Even with a kids playground area. Permanent exhibition includes a very well selected amount of daily life / technological/ art objects from Landskrona area and surroundings since the first inhabitants to actual time. Nicely organized through periods in different rooms. Video room with many seats at the end of a corridor. Temporary exhibitions interesting, but in my opinion the highlight is the permanent. At the entrance you will find in display tourism/ cultural activities information. And a small museum shop with a small amount of art books. Very well located in the centre of the town in front of the main square. Free entrance. Just be aware that closing time is 17.00 PM.

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.
