Galata Museum Of The Sea, Genoa Reviews - Write a Review
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.
