Mayday. Mayday. Mayday.

Learn more about the past and present of maritime rescue, listen to the rescuers’ stories, and see a real rescue helicopter and other equipment for helping those in distress.

The exhibition also provides information about how to behave more consciously at sea and by the sea, about what choices can be made in different situations and about what goes on in the head and body in a crisis situation. Survivors of the MS Estonia ferry disaster tell their stories.

The exhibition features many interactive exhibits and simulators. You can participate in training the rescuers, receive a distress signal as the leader of a rescue mission, test the thickness of ice on a body of water and engage in a lot of other exciting activities.

This exhibition concerns us all: beach-goers, fishers, ship passengers, master mariners, rescuers and rescuees. All of us have had some kind of contact with big bodies of water.

The exhibition has been put together in extensive cooperation with leading experts and responsible institutions of maritime rescue in Estonia.

The exhibition is open from 24.03.2017-14.01.2018.
