  • Museum with great objects and artifacts for all interested in history and contemporary of people research of seas and oceans. Visit on submarine is something exciting and slightly terryfaing.  more »
  • It was okey, but if you come here after the submarine museum it's hard to top. There was a lot of facts about the oil fields in Kaliningrad.  more »
  • A great museum! A lot of things to see and learn. It takes 3-4 hours to visit everything. This museum has historical objects and ships, ocean life - related objects, old oceanic fossils etc. It could be worth visiting a second time to read all the inscriptions :-). Recommended.
  • Very interesting museum - numerous ships and other vessels for exploration + main hall with aquariums. And new exhibition hall is coming up soon. Highly recommended to visit! But be aware - it's not "just a museum", the complex can take almost entire day to see everything.
