As a curator it breaks my heart when I visit a museum with such an incredible building and collection with terrible customer service and no visitor amenities. No English language audio guide available the day we visited, no English language labels, and no English speaking...More

I'm not personally into naval history. But this museum was quite extensive and had a lot to offer. Although, beware of ticket prices! Foreigners are charged double!

As with so many Russian museums, English texts here are kept to the barest minimum. We were severely disappointed when the staff signaled to me that no English audioguide is available during my visit. I do not know if she’s meant it was never available...More

A superb museum which unlike many Museums in Russia, avoids modern politics. The exhibits and models are very high quality, and the museum is very well planned. Admission prices are very reasonable.

I enjoyed the museum, But I found a couple of things that i didn't like. The cost for all items from audio tours to admission seemed high for displaying mostly models, plus there are no English cards beside the Russians cards. I would not mention...More

This museum is definitely a must see. Not a massive amount in English. This museum starts pretty much at the beginnings of the Navy and takes you through the developments up till pretty recent times. Noticed on my walk round there's Q codes at various...More
