Exhibition "One hundred years under the keel. The story of Estonian ships 1918–2018"

24-13 / Febr.-Jan. / 2018-2019 | Seaplane Harbour

The fate of a coastal country is closely related to ships. Ships took away and brought back, saved and helped escape, marked the outbreak of war and the beginning of peace, embodied happiness and heartbreak – ships were vital to the country and the people. This exhibition tells 100 unique stories about Estonian ships from 1918 to 2018. At the same time, we take a bow before the people who worked, learned or travelled on these ships.
