Tallinn Airport Opens Library, Rakvere Opens Police Museum
On a good day for Estonian culture, Tallinn Airport opened a public library on Thursday, while Rakvere cut the ribbons on a new museum that showcases police work.
People waiting for their flights at the Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport may now do so in the comfort of a new armchair and pick up one of the more than thousand books available at the lending library, all donated by the public, reported ETV on Thursday.
Erik Sakkov, a board member of the airport, said that Tallinn will never become the largest airport in the world, but it can strive to become the coziest.
The Police Museum in Rakvere features guns, counterfeit currency and a machine to detect reaction speeds, among other attractions.
“The museum is a story of us, it displays our hard, yet interesting job,” said Elmar Vaher, the new chief of Estonia's Police and Border Guard Board.
The museum's administrators said they hope to attract 20,000 visitors annually.
