  • Was the daughter of 14 years, took the main Exposition and Aquarium. Watched without excursions, but it was interesting. Near each exhibit has a detailed description, there are information stands. A small Aquarium but nevertheless, looked at it with gusto. After exploring, you can drink coffee in the Café of the Museum and browse for souvenirs. The Museum Exposition is very extensive, if we get to Kaliningrad in the warmer months, be sure to visit the ships and a submarine. Currently builds a new building of the Museum, but the Museum is not affected. I advise to visit.
