The Fat Margaret, which accommodates the Estonian Maritime Museum, is an almost 500-year-old artillery tower with a colorful history. The tower invites the guests to a trip into the history of Estonian seafaring and fishing from prehistoric to modern times. The exhibition is divided between four floors, and the visitors can also go to the roof terrace, which offers a splendid view of the passenger harbor, the city center and rooftops of the Old Town. The exhibition includes over 100 ship models, from old sail ships to modern freighters and passenger ships.

The ReCoSoc 2016 social event will take place on Tuesday, June 28. We will start by visiting the Museum of Coastal Folk.
A complex of seaside-farmhouse over 150 years old is located in the picturesque coastal village of Pringi in Viimsi. Here you can get a glimpse of the everyday lives of villagers, of their work on both the land and sea, of their entertainment and village parties, their market days and holyday traditions.
The historical atmosphere is perfect for relaxing and the best place to admire the famous silhouette of Tallinn.
The final event of the evening, the Conference Dinner, will be held at Restaurant Farm which offers modern Estonian cuisine and is located at the very heart of the medieval Tallinn.
