Went here when the weather wasn't so good, had such a fun time looking round it all! Never expected there to be so much and so many floors! I've got to say, the roof terrace was the best part for me, the views over the port and surroundings was breath taking!

This is an interpretation centre for Genoa and its relation with the sea. There are some really good recent interactive exhibits but little that's old. It's good fun for an hour or two & kids should enjoy. I thought it was great until I realised at the exit I should have paid to get in, it wasn't free. If I'd paid I would have been a lot less happy. The roof terrace is worth a visit for the view

Interesting modern museum. Replica ships, especially a replica galley are very interesting. There is also a good display about Italian emmigration to America. Most of the exhibits are explained in English, although it is a pity the translation is often poor.

First, what's important to point out is that the museum offers both exhibitions that are of average quality and excellent ones. However, for a fan of naval history it's simply not enough. The part we enjoyed the most was the interactive exhibition about Italian emmigration (and subsequent immigration to Italy) - an instructive and entertaining visit for children as well as adults.
Definitely don't miss the visit of the submarine Nazario Sauro (its visit can will included in yor ticket if you choose the more expensive option) - an unique experience, both for experts
The rest of the exhibition is an obsure mixture of deposits and objects having a common but very vague theme : "the sea". When your visit is over and before you leave, DON'T FORGET to go to the 4th floor where's a splendid outside terrace offering nice views of the city and the harbour.

I was drug here with a friend and I ended up fascinated. I learned so much about the history of this city and I also enjoyed popping into the submarine.
