Interesting little museum. Good meal of smoked salmon provided on our tour. Beach outside was lovely although we were there at twilight on a cold December afternoon!

Located on the sea shore with a nice view of the Bay. Apparently one man assembled the marine oriented artifacts shown in this very small museum. It is full of charm

A nicely preserved house full of historical artefacts and probably the richest collection of true sea themed treasures. There was a Maritime school located in the same building in 1918-1931. The owners are very friendly and there's a little cafe inside too. While place and...More

In a museum you expect some explanation. Not around here. Once we had paid the obligatory donation, we were left on our own. Looking around this "museum" will not take more than 10 minutes.

The museum is located in a beautiful, small village next to the sea. It is actually the home of the charming couple that run it. Very informative, not only for maritime matters but for insights into life before, during and after soviet occupation.
