A lot to see, and really interesting. Calculate at least two hours if the subject interest you. The place is full of oceanic history, have several small and larger aquariums, and are well organized. Tips. Buy tickets at the touristinformation Office at the old Square. Saves you time upon arrival - skip the que. But the best tip is to... More

Great day out in this museum/Aquarium . A bit pricey, but worth it. I suggest to buy the combi ticket including the Meeresmuseum.

This place was awesome, especially for our 6 year old who is a budding scientist. Our 4 year old also greatly enjoyed this aquarium. I also really appreciated how they showed how trash affects sea life.

There was a huge line out front the building when we arrived. However the line moved reasonably fast. Because the museum is so big you don't feel like you're in a crowded place. Even at the aquariums we had al the time to watch the fish. The exhibition itself is a nice mixture of an interactive museum and aquariums. I... More

A major Stralsund attraction, you can spend all day at this large attraction. There are many static displays explaining sea life, the geological history of the seas, and issues with pollution, as well as the fascinating live aquarium displays: there are some surprisingly colourful fish in our Northern seas.

We visited a lot of ocean location around the world. This Ozeaneum is a very special location. It has all for learning and entertainment. Especially the big hall with the sound of the Wales is impressive. A place you have to Visite when in the area.

Optically of questionable exterior design in view of the general neighborhood's history, the aquatic exhibits were comparable with other marine life presentations world-wide. Somewhat expensive to view the entire facility, which takes at least two hours, it ends up with a joyous feeling to see true daylight again... It did not help to have a group of children run about...
