  • A large exposition, and which is represented by a lot of ships, seaplane (which we could not get to, because exactly how to get there no one says, including the cashier), a submarine and an aquarium. The cashier is a very slow-motion woman and did not warn that the seaplane is better to try to visit first, because it is closed very early. The museum's employees are mostly not friendly people. Loved visiting a fishing boat and a tour of it. Friendly people work on this ship and thanks to them the impression of the museum remained good.

  • It seems to me that the exhibitions will be interesting for all ages. There are open-air, there are separate halls.

  • 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.
