  • An expansive and very thorough walk through Genovas rich maritime history. The exhibits are very well done and many are interactive which is a very fun and engaging element. The first couple rooms you walk in you might not expect it to be as a awesome as it is past that point. I didn't get the audio tour in English which I regret since many exhibits are written in italian only.

  • One of the best museums I've ever been to. Gives a great look into the history of Genoa and its port, sailing and navigation, Italian emigration and sea myths. Really well done and modern.

  • Very nice and large, we could spend there 2 hours. Really nice museum. Many explanatory notes were only in italien language

  • Stunning displays of genoan history from the foundations of the city. Very impressive and detailed in every exhibit. Highly recommended for anyone, and don't forget to plan a minimum of 3 hours for the entire museum, plus you have the possibility to visit a real submarine!!

  • Fantastic museum. Much more interesting and well put together then I expected. Good fun for all family.
