Lithuanian Sea Museum, Klaipeda

4.3
#2 of 9 in Museums in Klaipeda County
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Just visited the dolphin show. Very good and well worth the money. The aquariums were closed and the sea lions were to late for us. It´s different tickets to all different venues so you can choose. I ...  more »
  • We rode on a dolphin show! Super! -30 show Duration minutes still have show sea lions. Maritime Museum did not go due to lack of time, but if you have time, visit. Difficult parking, but you can leave your car in the farthest parking lot and drive to the Museum at avtoparavozike, it's better because the staff on foot! Price 9 euro dolphins show children a little cheaper

  • Modest exhibition of various marine historical artefacts and small ship models. There are few interactve items. Unfortunatelly, at the moment (2017 summer) aquarium is still closed for reconstruction. You still can see penguins, seals and sea lions in outside pools. There is still a lot of room for improvement, but keep up the good work!
  • 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 :)
  • Great sea museum and a dolphinarium nearby.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Klaipeda

The seaside city of Klaipeda boasts many funky yet reasonably priced hotels. Most cluster in the city center, but others, farther out, may have the advantage of sea views. For a slightly less expensive option, choose one of the city's hostels; most place you right in the thick of things. While guesthouses here are somewhat less popular compared with other Lithuanian cities, they remain the least expensive lodging in town and can provide an authentic local experience. As with other Lithuanian towns, you can opt to stay in a tent or camper at a campsite just a bit outside of town. Campsites also offer hostel-style accommodations.
