  • Very interesting and informative guided sightseeing tour. On display are artifacts of the time of creation of the Russian Navy, the appearance of the city, the great patriotic war and the post-war period. After passing through the halls of the Museum, you realize the greatness of our history, of our State. I thank the staff of the Museum for their work.

  • Worthwhile to visit 😊 Interesting to see the history of shipbuilding in Mykolaiv.
  • Amazing and comprehensive history captured in ship models, artwork and archaeology. A real highlight for any visit to Mykolayiv.
  • Great museum for understanding history of the city and shipbuilding industry in southern part of Ukraine. It's not yet 100% comfortable for non-russian speakers, yet very informative museum, even in visual way only. Must-visit place when you are in Mykolaiv
  • Nice and very relaxing :-)
  • A very interesting Museum for history buffs, equipment, ships. Now the level is not as high as before, but previous collections have not lost relevance. Many times visited him and the child and adult. Beautiful replicas of the ships, the history of the Black Sea fleet. There is a square with open-air exhibits. You can safely come and see-feel the ship guns, torpedoes and mines. What is left from them.
