  • If you're in Kaliningrad, the Museum is worth a visit. I was on the ship, and submarine museums inside the building. Boat and ship I liked. Not like just what many exposure behind the glass (in the building of the Museum is not particularly liked, look particularly nothing.

  • Stopped successfully. In Monday. For children and curious, however, is where to show up and what to see. Unfortunately, in the Museum of the world ocean is not hit-output, but, despite this, some museums (child. Located in the same territory and subjects) are open. On the fan. Entrance standard. 200 rub. The staff were very helpful. Tell-show. In General, I wonder. Show worth it.

  • 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! 👍👍👍
