  • As with so many Russian museums, English texts here are kept to the barest minimum. We were severely disappointed when the staff signaled to me that no English audioguide is available during my visit....  more »
  • I am delighted by the visit to the Museum. I Liked Everything. Genial staff, architecture, interiors, showrooms, as intelligently divided into rooms, how many very significant exhibits, all nicely. All fleet with the most ancient times, this and many model ships, relics of the major naval battles, flags, immersed in the story. 2.5 hours flew by like a breeze. I advise everyone to visit here. Surprised that it is not such a "popular", few people know about this Museum

  • A visit to the Museum, especially in new or moved to a new building, is for me very important and interesting event. Recently, the much-loved me Naval Museum moved with the spit of vasilyevsky island in the area of labour. Here's there I went with the woman on the protracted holidays. Actually, it was scary to wait for meeting with the new Museum. The old Museum was a small platform on which stood shoulder to shoulder historical exhibits, models, large and very large model ship models, Peter's little boat, submarine and other, miscellaneous, paintings hanging on the walls of a row of marine painters, among where numerom first always was and is Aivazovsky. So it was terrible the first time enter into the new building. But everything turned out fine. The exhibition is a wonderful, lots of space, good light, availability of exhibits for the review-I liked everything. There are new sections-Naval Aviation, for example. Only, in my opinion, the disadvantage is not enough places to sit, relax, think. Yes health and desire to run around the entire Museum gallop over an hour there, and spend more time-does not allow placement algorithm banquettes will. But still-the impression is very good. Thank you!

  • A nice modern museum showing all aspects of Russian Naval History. I especially liked the submarine from the 1880s. There were models of various sizes. There were sections on different historical periods. After the section on the Russo-Japanese War, the next section was titled: Rebuilding the Navy. I appreciated the honesty.
  • Great museam! Really huge excibition. It could take several days to view it all.
  • Very interesting, especially recommended for history and/naval technology.
  • Great collection of models of various sizes and different time periods.
  • New museum with thoughtful displays. However everything was written in Russian and not English.
