Maritime Museum to Open

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

The main attractions at the 15 million euro ($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 tsarist 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.
