Lot of information and curios and stuff to almost experience folks living and working in conditions from inhuman (submarine) to superhuman (German built and Soviet exploited vessel). Can't be seen all in a day or two but one can try.

The exhibits in the moored vessels are excellent, with clear and informative information in several languages. The aquarium is another matter, the exhibits are clearly labelled but the tanks are small. There is a small snack bar in the foyer of the museum that has an excellent selection of teas.

Check how they sell their tickets and chose what you want to see, I found this place very interesting it shows fishes, different types of sands, there is also a visit to a very interesting boat that took 10 years to be restored and there is a section that hasn't been finished.

i was not going to bother with this museum (4 ships including a submarine, an aquarium albeit with fish and sharks in too little space) but well worth a visit for the soviet submarine alone....
