Set in a restored 19th-century fort, Lithuanian Sea Museum and its onsite aquarium explores humans' relationship with the ocean and the life of marine animals. In rooms that were once gunpowder storage cellars, visitors can admire ship models and archaeological artifacts accompanied by informational displays about Lithuanian seafaring. Exhibits on the history of marine life tackle subjects such as evolution, the fauna of the sea, and dangerous ocean creatures, both real and legendary. At the aquarium, you can meet a diverse array of fish including freshwater species, creatures from the Baltic Sea, and tropics dwellers. Outdoor pools are home to seals, sea lions, and penguins, and the adjoining dolphinarium hosts dolphin shows. Check for show times when you arrive.

Морской музей - это действительно настоящий аттракцион с удивительными аквариумами, подводным тоннелем, восхитительными животными (особенно очаровательны пингвины и морской лев), различного рода культ... more »The Maritime Museum is a real attraction with amazing aquariums, underwater tunnel, amazing animals (especially adorable penguins and sea lion), various kinds of cultural projects and other types of activities. In addition to the museum itself, a wonderful exhibition of ships, a dolphinarium. And if you run to the beach, which is a stone's throw away - you can not notice how will fly all day.
It's a fun park, it has enough things to do for a few hours and is suitable for the whole family. There were a lot of cute and cool sea creatures, and it was more like a zoo than a museum. There is also a part of the place that is dedicated to ships, although I didn't go there.
Informative and interactive fun. You can spend there couple of hours, learn few, new things about sea world, watch live fishes in aquariums, varying from Lithuanian to tropical ones. Also you can enjoy some of the animals such as seals, sea lions and penguins upclose. Museum itself is located in old German fortifications which is also very interesting. Recommended.
