The Seaplane Harbor museum in Tallinn opened its latest exhibition - “Sail or Sink” - which will run until July 26 this year.

The exhibition features 14 hands-on exhibits in large marine containers. Visitors can see, read and experiment how nature's forces act on the seas, and how they have influenced maritime history.

“Guests will be able to generate waves or whirlpools, steer ships through locks, go under water, escape from a sinking shop and much more,” the museum said.

Urmas Dresen, the head of the museum, said all of the showpieces at Sail or Sink are interactive. “Our previous experience at the Seaplane Harbor show that children and adults alike like to get their hands on things and experiment.”

The museum will hold a grand opening on Saturday between 12:00 and 16:00.

The museum's last temporary exhibition, about the Titanic, broke all Estonian museum visitor records and earned the museum around 1 million euros in profit.
