Museum of the World Ocean reviews
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.
