Estonia to open maritime museum in seaplane hangar
Estonia to open Baltics' largest maritime museum in Tallinn
By The Associated Press

TALLINN, Estonia (AP) ' Estonia will open the Baltic states' largest maritime museum in a hangar once used by Charles Lindbergh.

The main attractions at the '15 million ($20 million) Seaplane Harbor will be a British-built submarine dating from the 1930s and a life-size replica of the 184 seaplane, a British two-seater designed by Short Brothers.

The unique concrete hangar housing the museum was built in 1916-17 when Estonia was part of czarist Russia. Its most famous guest was Lindbergh, the U.S. aviator, who flew there from Moscow in 1933 as part of his tour around Europe.



The hangar was a closed military zone from 1940, when the Soviet Union annexed Estonia, until 1991 when the Baltic state regained its independence.
