“A surprise for children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

If You have a grumpy children just take Them to an one-hour visit in the interactive session in the Maritime Museum (just north of the Crane at the shore of Motlawa). It will be a nice surprise for Them (They can drive a sailship or even the tanker, they can make a tsunami, the cane learn how to send the SOS signal, etc, etc...)

5 stores of an extraordinary exhibition. The most interesant is the medieval and up-to-18th century part, as well as underwater archeology department.

“Pretty cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I liked this place. The exhibits are not in English, but there are documents you can carry with you as you enter each section that describes everything in English, among other languages. Lots of interesting history and artifacts. The only thing we didn't like were the people we bought the ticket from. They seemed upset that we asked them questions.

“Nice presentation of nautical items of the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Well done, nice to have a section for kids to play & learn about shipping from different aspects of being on ships, to loading containers, or how waves work! Nice to see how other countries boats differ from being on the Baltic Sea. Was a great way to spend a day (and keep out of the intermittent showers of the day)!

“Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

You can buy a ticket that gives tou access to all four venues. The staff in the first and more modern museum acted very confused and poorly trained.
