Seaplane Harbour‘s exhibition- A perfect adventure for families, the museum highlights include a submarine, a steam ship and multiple interactive activities. Seaplane hangars were initially constructed as part of the naval fortress of Peter the Great in 1916-1917. The hangars are the world’s first reinforced concrete shell structure.
