Nice museum with a lot of war machines. History buffs will like seeing the old stuff. Has an admission fee, but worth it.

I really enjoyed walking around this museum and seeing the ships, hovercraft, guns, planes, mines etc. I never got to see the Nuclear Submarine as it required a guide, extra fee and time slot. I was also disappointed that the land exhibition was very crowded,...More

Being from America, it is rather rare to see some of the Soviet-era war material, espically from World War II. Highlight for me were the trio of T-34/85 tanks. You can climb on the warships, but the one closest is more interactive. Still, for 40rmb...More

The entry fee is cheap and honestly there is not so much to do. There are tanks to climb on and planes etc to look at. Only one ship was accessible, the others including the submarine were not accessible.

We actually not been inside. But you can see many ships from outside. There are big warships and also a submarine and a hoovercraft to see. I'm sure if you are interested in Navy stuff it is very nice there

Wow! What a shocking collection of rusted garbage! What wasn't in utter disrepair was lacquered in thick, glossy, cheap paint. White-walls are painted on tires, tires are painted black, "key exhibits" have flat tires or are decayed. For anyone fearing a Chinese military takeover of...More

Loved the multifarious exhibitions at the navy museum, it illustrated the evolution of our navy history: From puny to one of the strongest in the world! No one shall conquer us now! You can find so many different kinds of submarines, battleships, torpedo launchers, and...More

If happens that you are the student, you can use your student card to have a 50% discount. It was sad to tell you guys that all the stuffs were so old and the museum was quite small compare to Qingdao'e very owned museum.
