  • We liked this one. Not much of it was in English, but we could have paid for a audio tour. Lots of models that shows development of Russian Naval fleet. Modern building.

  • Beautiful and surprisingly interesting museum. The ship models are just works of art. Little signage in English unfortunately.
  • Wonderful place to visit, everything is new and shiny. The main disadvantage, it's a place where you want to go to with kids, so, the place is good only for older boys and girls, for the little ones, the place doesn't offer any interactive activities, so they are getting bored pretty fast.
  • Nice museum, with much naval history under one roof.
  • overpriced at 600R - there's some mines, torpedos and other artefacts, just a handful of small actual boats, and then it's mostly models of ships - very detailed, but even that gets old quick. the crazy thing is that they charge just 100R less than the Ermitage, where you can easily spend 10h or more...
  • There's a lot of effort put into the models and the museum is well maintained and updated. But it is unfortunately not very english-friendly (the explanations next to the artefacts are all in russian) and unless you are very interested in naval history etc I wouldn't recommend the museum.
