  • A very large Museum: ships, submarine, airplane and familiar Exposition. The exposition of the depth of a small but very modern, interactive quizzes, monitors with information concerning not only the exhibits, but in General and marine markets. Sperm whale skeleton near the ceiling makes an impression! Oh and aquariums-beauty, what else to say!

  • It is a place where you can spend a day or even a few. It will be interesting to everyone-both sexes from small to big exposure accounted for these submarines, warships, military aircraft, special communications, navigation, ... the halls can be traced not one epoch, about than tell professional guides. Unlike most Russian museums, exhibits can and should be touched, moved, try and photograph you can of course read the descriptions just recall, but believe me, it is better to see everything by yourself

  • Very nicely framed Museum. Good to walk on a sunny day. The Aquarium is very small. Exhibition halls are good to visit only in plozuju weather. If no interest in sea depths, oborudovniju on their study, not worth paying.
