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 :-)
Valeriia ZąbkowskaI 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.
Анна ПутятишнаEmbarrassing 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.
Антонина БычковаA unique Museum. Exhibition Hall impressive number and variety of ship models from the most ancient to the most modern. A beautiful place. Large open-air Exposition. Interesting for children and adults.
