This is an interesting small museum. It is hard to find if you're using a map, as it is below road level and only accessible by going down to the Zea Marina harbour level. But once in there it is an interesting place to visit. The Greek success at the Battle of Salamis is highlighted and its importance in stopping... More

Best was a replica of a Greek explorers ship, right out of ancient Greece. Next a battlle ship with interesting collection giving one a good look of life at sea.

Piraeus being the biggest harbour of the Mediterranean - what more natural to do than visit the Nautical Museum? We found it after a little bit of struggle. We were the only visitor this morning and indeed found a display of a lot different ships - older and less old. But it was very much up to what you could... More

Do visit this nautical museum, covers local and Greek nautical history from earliest to present. Some shipwreck artifacts as well. Ancient anchors, old glass lighthouse, and check out the ultra rich Greek yachts just across park, views there lovely.

Having enjoyed the maritime museums at Falmouth and Greenwich I was drawn in here and not remotely disappointed. Very different from the British or French (eg Brest) approach but still well done. Go to the website to get the flavour but if you have any interest in the sea and seafarers then this place is easily worth an hour or... More

Having toured ruins for two weeks with little under 2,000 years old, we were looking for something a little more recent. Imagine our shock when the entrance dealt with triremes and amphoras! This, however, was the start of a journey through nautical history almost to the present day. A mixture of models, artefacts from wars, personal items from naval commanders... More

Greece's history in the seas from b.c. cenuries to nowdays concentrated in one museum. Models of anciente triremes to first ocean liners, nautical instruments and many seascape paintings of famus Greeks artists. Worth to see!

This museum has a very nice exterior appearance from a distance, but as you get close up the construction is fairly crude. The holdings consist mainly of paintings, photographs, etc., and ship models--few of which are ancient. For some reason they have a no photography policy--which is incomprehensible given the mediocrity of the holdings and the banality of their presentation.... More
