Okey

It was okey, but if you come here after the submarine museum it's hard to top. There was a lot of facts about the oil fields in Kaliningrad.

Well worth a visit
Nov 2019 • Family
Even though its a very very small museum it has a certain charm . The small display of fishes is nice and the submarine along side naval mines and war cannons . Its small and wont make an impression on you but its also very cool . Cause you can touch alot of exhibits . I will recommend this for families especially with boys to look at some naval war machines . And take a short tour on small boats just so you feel the atmosphere .

The submarine is fascinating
Jul 2019 • Couples
We only checked out the submarine and the other Soviet items on site. It was definitely worth visiting, but not for claustrophobics.

One of my favorite places in Kaliningrad - Fantastic Museum for all ages.
Apr 2018
The Museum of the World Ocean in Kaliningrad is amazing. I went there twice and did not manage to see everything in two visits. That tells you about its size. The museum has different ships on display which you can tour. It also holds an Aquarium and several museum buildings with changing exhibitions. This is a great museum to visits with kids and for couples. It is engaging and the ships on display are extremely interesting to see and walk through.

Only If This Is Your Thing
Oct 2018 • Friends
There are two sides in this building for which you need to pay to go into each one. The aquarium is small with maybe 12 fish tanks that are not all that large. Nice tropical fish to watch. The other side contains the MIR, which is the small submersible that explored the Atlantic, Lake Baikal, and Lake Geneva over 1000+ trips including the Titanic. A lot of the equipment on display. Nothing really memorable for me here. Very little English signage. They do have a cafe. If oceanography is your thing, then go. Otherwise you might find something else more interesting to explore in town.

The research vessel, the sub and the Deep are good
Aug 2018 • Solo
You can take separate tickets for what you want to visit. I recommend the submarine, the research vessel and the Deep. The Aquarium is only interesting for people who have never seen aquariums, the exhibition is rather small. The Deep is interesting to learn more about research submarines and the ocean. Not everything is translated to English.

A great overview of the Russian's naval activities
Jul 2018 • Friends
The Museum is a collection of both exhibitions and vessels, illustration Russian importance at sea. Seeing it all is almost impossible, so make your choices.
