The museum is worth a visit if you have an interest in the sea and maritime history. There is a lack of english explanation on the exhibits so can be hard to follow if you aren't versed in the finer points. However it is Italy...More

Beautiful museum. But not for foreign tourists. You can ask for an audioguide, but there is so much noise in the museum that it is almost impossible to understand the audioguide. Above all is the explanation that you get too brief. A pity if you...More
