Not only the museum, but the Gabrielli Palace, where the museum is worth to visit. On the first floor there are wonderful rooms,richly decorated. The museum collection itself is very informatív, nice ship models, and a lot of history.

Located a short way from the main square and beautifully set on the harbour is this interesting museum spread over a number of floors. For a very modest fee you receive an ipad with multi lingual details because most of the boards were only in Slovenian and Italian. It was an interesting museum with a lot of naval history and...

Interesting old museum on 2 floors. In the museum you can find also old furniture. In one angle you can find very interesting floor, because it is made of glass and below are stones and sea shells. Museum talks about development of Slovenian maritime.

Probably the most helpful person we met in Slovenia was on duty here, and we met many very helpful people. So we had a great time. Fascinating material, including some brilliant ship models.

Enjoyed our visit to this most interesting museum showing all aspects of maritime history on different floors. Need at least 2 hours to appreciated all that was on offer, even though a lot was not in English it was still worth looking at.

This museum is in a lovely old palace, with permanent and temporary exhibitions, and an iPad for English information about the collections. It's hard to know what to read / listen to at which point, and which room you're in, but there's plenty of interest, and the museum covers a broad range of maritime topics (archaeology, history, military). Worth a... More

Facing the old harbour, pinky on the outside but great collection in the inside. There are shown all the ages of the local seastory. From roman times, to a very reach middle age section, with a lot of old vessel model. The austrian period and shipbuilding craftsmans are well presented.

Despite the very good critics on TA about this attraction and also seen that I have visited several maritime museums in my life, I was skeptical and did not expected to visit such a pleasant place. Entrance fee is 3.50 EUR but well worth the price. You can easily spend more than one hour in this elegant old building starting... More
