Lithuanian Sea Museum, Klaipeda

(4.3/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Set in a restored 19th-century fort, Lithuanian Sea Museum and its onsite aquarium explores humans' relationship with the ocean and the life of marine animals. In rooms that were once gunpowder storage cellars, visitors can admire ship models and archaeological artifacts accompanied by informational displays about Lithuanian seafaring. Exhibits on the history of marine life tackle subjects such as evolution, the fauna of the sea, and dangerous ocean creatures, both real and legendary. At the aquarium, you can meet a diverse array of fish including freshwater species, creatures from the Baltic Sea, and tropics dwellers. Outdoor pools are home to seals, sea lions, and penguins, and the adjoining dolphinarium hosts dolphin shows. Check for show times when you arrive.

  • Dolphinarium is nice but no information when will reconstruction of the museum itself end.
  • Be aware!.. at the moment closed for reconstruction. Was here 10 years ago :)
  • Nice place to see all kinds of sea life best at summer & weekends
  • Unfortunately it is not very interesting + very dated It may be that as a child I was spoilt for choice in Australia with Sea World on the Gold Coast and other places like this - but I really did not get any enjoyment out of this "sea museum". There some interesting facts and figures but the facility was very old and the animals (for the most) did not seem very happy. I would not recommend a visit unless you have children that you need to entertain for an afternoon - as the kids seemed to enjoy the shows and animals.
  • WARNING. It's clothed for renovation, the only place you can get in is dolphinarium.
