Lithuanian Sea Museum, Klaipeda

4.4
#1 of 6 in Museums in Klaipeda
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.

  • Get out of the city by ferry from the ferry goes specifically to the tank engine Museum. If the weather allows, you can walk (about 2 km) next to the stunning dolphin.

  • Educational, entertaining experience, what is worth to check out! Museum consists of sea life education and around aquarium in fort you can know more about maritime life and history. Aquarium is modern - by every section there is interactive touch screen. You can learn about Baltic Sea history, touch sharks skin, see different sea shells and much, much more. In maritime museum you can learn how to drive a ship and make knots. From 1 pm to 2:30 pm there is animal feeding outside of aquarium (check exact times by every animal pools). I suggest to come at 11, so you can enjoy whole experience. If you are hungry, you can eat at Dolphinarium cafe and if there is show, you can see dolphins through windows by cafe.
  • It's a nice place to visit. I wish they would have more exhibits of fishes found in Lithuanian rivers and lakes, but overwise really nice place . And just walk outdoors and enjoy beautiful surroundings. And we visited in the winter, but would be nice to have some food place there too
  • Very nice after reconstruction. Funny dolphins' show. Loved it!
  • Nice place. Car parking place is near the museum, but You can reach museum by taxi-boat or ferry also.
  • Amazeing place to visit. Highly recomend to see it.
