  • First saw the submarines, including secret. Outside, all very impressive. It is a pity that it was not possible to inspect ships and boats inside. But the outside impression is very good!

  • Amazing exhibits. The submarine is highly recommended to visit.
  • Large and very interesting exposition, definitely a "must visit" place in Kaliningrad
  • Лучший музей города
  • I liked how the old port area of the airport. Several museums. Prices are low, but given the insignificant exposures-noticeably higher than average. Residents of more or less large cities Aquarium it is better not to attend-will be disappointed with the scale and regret the poor rays, including the Aquarium of less than 1 cube of water with a bunch of huge fish too.

  • The Museum is unique. Another such in Russia. Very interesting, informative, impressive! You can tell about this place, but it's better at least once to see it! Above all-the Museum is the perfect place for walking and recreation. At the moment the Museum expands and builds. I hope very much that soon we will see the updated Museum in all its glory! 👍👍👍
