Museum Of Ancient Shipbuilding, Mainz Reviews

  • Dont exepect more.. They are replicas of the roman ships. But everthing is well explained. Entry is free.

  • Great place to visit, interesting ship models, they even have guides who show you around during every hour, and it only costs 3 Euros

  • Very good displays but the building looks out of place because of the modern construction

  • Enjoyed the museum, the exhibit is small but was worth spending 45 minutes there, especially since admission is free

  • Inside the museum are shown wood reproductions of romans' war ships from I to III century D.C.. Almost all of them are just models, but there are also a couple of them in 1:1 scale. The exibhition is well organized and free entrance. The panles are in German, and just few of them have been translated into English. Is notable the ammount of different boat models; each of theme thought to face a different environment and water properties.
