Enjoyed this visit, but it is quite dark inside (has some ancient manuscripts, so probably to preserve those). Some interesting arrangements of ships old and new. Learned a lot about Genovese history (esp about Chris Columbus) and Genoa's achievements militarily. Some of the exhibits are...More

It's big - on 5 floors plus the submarine! You start off on the ground floor with some historical facts on Cristopher Columbus then up to lean how the Genovese made their stupendous wealth. On the second floor you can steer a ship and learn...More

As others have put it before me, it is indeed much larger than it looks. It is very meticulously organized by floors and themes, and the exhibits are not only amazingly detailed, accurate and masterfully preserved, they are also very engaging. Not just a dusty...More

We went with our 7 years old son and we LOVED it! It is a good 2-3 hours spent filled with history of Genoa and its maritime power. Really interesting and is definitely suitable for young kids, adolescents and adults. We would highly recommend it...More

Some wonderful exhibits including two full size ships. Covers Genova's links with the sea from pre Columbus to the present day. Only disappointment was that despite the great presentations and information, quite a lot of these have no translation.
