    This museum is hard to confuse with any other: along the fence are several busts of seafarers, have had a significant impact on navigation and shipbuilding. Pleasant impressions from the primuzejnoj territory: a clean, beautiful and comfortable patio with lots of benches. Me frankly "vybesila" the cashier, but very pleasant impressions from the benevolence of the remaining officers! If you plan to visit this Museum, you need to take into account that the excursions must be booked in advance. Cost of services: adult ticket to the main Exposition-8 UAH., exhibitions-5 UAH./exhibition, photography-25 UAH, videography-35 UAH., excursion service group 10-15 people-50 UAH. The Museum has free Wi-Fi. In the exhibition, in addition to beautiful and detalnejshih ship models, personal belongings and documents presented to sailors and shipbuilders, household items, paintings. The Museum is small but very cozy.

  • 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 :-)
  • I did not expect that I like as not especially interested in fleet and shipbuilding. But the Museum has proven to be incredibly interesting with many halls, layouts and exhibits. Before visiting the costs a little bit to get acquainted with the history of Nikolaev-then will be even more exciting, you can "revive" historical events and personalities.

  • Embarrassing to admit, but the last time was in the Museum back in school. 10 years later the Museum impressed. The only thing that is bad not only the Museum but also in all museums lack Nickolas inscriptions in English. There is only one sign that describes the room.
