  • Modern and fairly large museum. Main reason I went there was the submarine outside... Nice view over the city from the terrace. The lady kicking the shark, hanging free in mid water, she is doing a good job. Though, you should not kick sharks! :)

  • So. Many. Paintings. Of. Ships. But also lots of other cool things, like life-sized replicas of ships you can board and explore as well as artifacts and replicas you can touch. Plenty of things for kids as well as adults. Be sure to allow plenty of time to explore every floor. Only the main displays have English translations, so if you don’t read Italian very well, you might want to get the audio tour. And don’t miss the view from the rooftop patio.

  • A great experience very informative from the beginning of the Italian sailing right through to modern times. An experience inside a real submarine is well worth the visit. 5 floors which can be a little confusing navigating round each floor as the direction signs are in obvious. Well worth the visit

  • Very detailed maritime museum! Lots of great exhibits, and plenty of material in English. The submarine entry fee includes a free audio tour.

  • I and my friend like this place very much as it contact museum. You can be in role of 20th century emigrant to NY. Even be a galey-slave. So recommended .
