Worth visiting for Navy-fans

It would be more interesting if you understood Italian or if you were a "navy" or "ship"-fan. But my kids enjoyed looking at several exhibitions.

I was one day in La spezia. This museum was the one I wanted to see on the day. It costs only 1.55 euros per person. And it is not far away from city center. It is not a huge museum but if you know about the history, there are more stories in it. I spent almost 2 hours there.... More

Great for a quick stop off, the gateway is the the Arsenale on the old part of the dockyard and there is a parking square opposite and also along the dock wall. Driving past you will see, from a distance, many of the current Italian navy ships. Price is about 1.5 Euros so don't expect to see grand battleships. BUT... More

The 2 man subs were what I wanted to see but there is much more, including the German Ultra cipher equipment and other examples. Lots of models, figure heads from ships and WW I and II weapons - small arms, artillery, ships guns and torpedoes. This was the base for the very successful Italian 2 man subs in WW II... More

The collection of small arms on display is outstanding and the submarine exhibits certainly take you down there.

I visited the museum on a Saturday, I was the only visitor but it may well have been because it was an amazing sunny day. The entrance fee is €1,50, there is no audioguide but there is a thin leaflet with some sort of explanation which I did not purchase. There are lot of beautiful polena (figureheads) but the part...

I have no idea why the price was 1.55 Euro, a very odd number, but having taken the wrong train and ending up in La Spezia instead of Vernazza for the afternoon, we made the best of it and headed for this place as the boys thought it better than another art museum. A lot of very cool scale replicas... More

Walked to this museum expecting more. Small, not much to see, disappointing. We were finished within a very short time.

Located near the mason port, the museum is worth a quick look if you enjoy naval history and is only 1.55 Euros. It had a good section on the history of Italian torpedo developments ( both in Italian and English). Otherwise a couple small WWII exhibits and a bunch of miscellaneous lighthouse and weaponry pieces.
