  • Great Maritime Museum in the heart of Stralsund, spectacular tour of idiosyncratic architecture: converted old Gothic monastery church - up under the roof and in the catacombs.... Worth a visit in any case!

  • Beautiful, manageable exhibition. Before all for children relatively appealing, vivid and understandable made. I personally prefer the Ozeaneum, off-key. the scope.

  • We were on Easter Saturday in Stralsund on a guided city tour, when we suddenly stood in front of the Maritime Museum. It started to rain again and we we thought about when we are and were not in the Muse of Oceanography in Stralsund to believe none. As we have bought a combined ticket for Museum and Ozeaneum. The Oceanography Museum we liked. There is a wide variety of marine wildlife to visit and easy to read off these animals occur in what regions is on the information boards. Children can take part in a quiz. I can only recommend this museum.

  • Museum with an aquarium, enough big. We visited the Ozeaneum and Meeresmuseum at the same day, but we were declined to change the Ozeaneum-only tickets for combitickets for unknown reason, although it seems to be allowed.
  • Not too big museum, which is a bit outdated, but is located in a very unusual location. The aquarium is comparatively small, but nice.
  • Fantastic place. Highly recomended
  • Probably the best museum i've ever been.
  • Interesting museum for adults and children. The museum offers an engaging audio guide for children.
