I have been to ... the Model Ship Collection at the Tallinn Maritime Museum: Part 4: Freighters and Cargo Ships

Besides being heavily involved in operating a range of both inshore and deep-sea trawlers, the Estonian Merchant Navy has always operated a large number of freighters and cargo ships relative to the size of the country.

This model was used to teach Merchant Navy Cadets how to stow cargo safely and securely aboard a ship.

    1. Conrad Kinch,

      The museum is not large, but it certainly has a great collection of ship models on show. Well worth the visit just to look at them.

      All the best,

      Bob
