An extraordinary adventure to discover six centuries of life on the sea. The museum is over 4 floors, with each floor giving details about Maritime history. 

On the ground floor, among other artefacts, you can see Christopher Columbus in the famous portrait attributed to Ghirlandaio. Then Codice dei Privilegi, a collection of original manuscripts, contains the story the great navigator.

On the first floor discover how to build an 11-metre long oar and watch the re-enactment of the arrival of silver coffers to Genoa from Spain. In the Atlases and Globes’ Room you can see how geographical discoveries traced the contours of new lands and seas during the 16th and 17th century. Touch screens allow visitors to browse through maps of that period and geo-localize them to the present day.
