Small but worth a visit
Aug 2019 • Family
Great to visit with teenagers who’s typical attention span is no more than 30 minutes. Museum tells the story of saving the remains of a vessel and its cargo found on the bottom of the sea, and what it represented in the ancient times. Unfortunately explanation texts are only in Italian.

really inspiring little museum
Jan 2019 • Friends
Housed in a crumbling old palace, this museum is wonderful - there is not an enormous amount to see, but it offers a real look into the sophistication of lives, import and export, and the sophisticated shipping and distribution of our forbears 2000 years ago.

Not a lot to see

Checked out this small museum on a Tuesday morning in April. Tickets were sold in a small ticket office not far from the Cathedral and the salesperson brought us to the museum and up the stairs and rang the bell for entry. The entire museum consists of one large room and 2 smaller ones and focuses entirely on a roman ship found off the coast in 1950. Quite interesting, but as no information available in any other language but Italian, it was difficult to follow the story.

A very physical representation of an ancient time

This is so far from the English description which would equate "Naval Museum" with guns, campaigns, wars. . . Here is an exquisite collection of the hundreds of heavy-duty amphorae, lost with their contents, along with a compelling account and exhibits of the naval technology at the time and of the retrieval process. The city's collection of gorgeous apothecary jars is at the same location. Staff is limited, so you ring the bell at the door, but they are knowledgeable and approachable.

A salvaged Roman ship on view
Aug 2016 • Couples
It is somewhat moving to look at those thousands vessels standing in rows that were recovered from the bottom of the sea nearly two thousand years after the shipwreck (many more are still lying there). They were carrying wine from Campania to Liguria, but the ship sank before reaching the port.

Yeh a little iinteresting but basic

Take interesting but really not worth the euros charged to get in and strange stand out side the locked door on approach stair where you have to ring a bell for access. When you get in you are go ven a ticket A4 paper visitors paper. A young girl then monitored from a distance as we strolled round. Bit of a strange mix of local farming excavation displays as well as the main ship wreck off the local coast.
