Due to the subject (water), this is an absolutely unique museum, and the location in an underground reservoir located on the premises of the local waterworks is a significant added value of this place.
Perfect arrangements, a lot of information and interesting facts about water-related subjects. This place is truly unique!

It is an overwhelmingly fantastic place for people like me, who are fans of sciences or for kids. The Interactive, modern exhibitions are truly impressive. Each aspect related to water or its influence on life on Earth is skilfully designed to engage visitors sensitively. Information is widely presented. I highly recommend taking a moment to stop in the first room and watch the entire film about water in the cosmos. You can easily spend not just two hours but an entire day there and not only for sightseeing.

From the depths to the shallow, from the scientific and engineering to the spiritual and historical, you will be able to see all kinds of aspects that concern water and humans.
I thought the 1:1 model of the bathyscaphe Trieste, complete with being able to sit in it, was the coolest.

Interesting modern museum. I recommend it. What was missing: there should be free tap water wells in such a facility! Also, please pay attention to receptionists. Some are not kind. They think people are idiots and don't notice their behaviour. But we do, dear blond one.

We were really looking forward to this museum. My husband was a science teacher and we both were interested in experiencing what we heard was an innovative and excellent museum. We were so disappointed when multiple big (30 or so students each) school groups of noisy poorly managed students created so much noisy crowded chaos that we had no recourse but to leave. The teachers were speaking loudly to the students about the exhibits which compounded the problems of crowding and noise. It’s not a big place. Surely the museum can limit groups and group sizes so that individuals and families can enjoy the museum, too. There did not appear to be any guidance by museum staff either. We had a timed entry which I assume was to manage crowds but with the school groups that went right out the window. There are no audio guides in English but we downloaded the app and figured out how to use it, but then found it difficult to hear the narration. We were very disappointed.

The theme of this Museum is life under the water. You can learn a lot of interesting thing about water, water creatures, ships and catastrophes in which they were involved. There is also a shop where you can buy souvenirs. The exhibition is really beautiful and this place is family friendly.

9 themed exhibitions (one temporary). Very informative + some bits interactive.

Fun place to go too. Overall experience a bit short - me and my bf were there about an hour-ish.

Cheaper to book online. Available to pay on entrances too.

There's every possible connection to water here - sea life, engineering, submarines. So it's got good variety and is quite interactive. Nearly all the exhibits have English language options.
