  • This museum we visited out of curiosity. 4 years ago was on an excursion in Sevastopol in military-historical Museum of the fortifications, the luxurious trips at the Maritime Museum in the city of Kharkov and Nikolayev decided to necessarily go and in Shipbuilding and Navy Museum. Because museums with maritime themes in Ukraine is not so much ... The Museum building was built in 1794, the appearance of the whole complex instantly attracts attention and arouses the desire to see what is there inside) just 12 rooms, the Museum exhibits nearly 3 thous. I, of course, more liked the left wing of the Museum and exhibits, where the history of shipbuilding in Ukraine from the times of Kievan Rus ... In the right wing of the exhibits introduce the shipyards and with a more modern period. Also in the Museum there are household items, form and seafarers navigational instruments (some can easily learn even a schoolboy). Generally informative. The Museum will be interesting for both adults and children)

  • A wonderful Museum, which is open on weekends. The rich Exposition, covering the whole history of Nikolaev shipbuilding and not only. Pet peeve just twist of curiosities, but perhaps this was an isolated incident.
