We loved the museum, especially the interactive parts like the galea and the emigration "trip" It is classic and innovative at the same time

Took our 7 and 9 year olds here in June and we all loved it. The immigrant exhibit on the 4th floor was fantastic, we learned so much and the kids were truly fascinated by learning about the people they got assigned to follow. The...More

The museum is worth a visit if you have an interest in the sea and maritime history. There is a lack of english explanation on the exhibits so can be hard to follow if you aren't versed in the finer points. However it is Italy...More

There are lovely points like reali life models of ships. Some aspects didn’t meet our understanding. Hence there were no signs in English, though overall it is very nice place to see and visit.

The time flew past on our visit to this museum. It is very engaging and a lot of effort has gone into bringing various exhibits to life. A little Italian would be helpful but not a pre-requisite. Would definitely recommend paying the extra for the...More

The Galata Museo del Mare offers a unique perspective on Maritime history...much more than just Columbus, Genova's native son.

As good a maritime museum as I have seen anywhere in the world - possibly even better than Bremerhaven. My only criticism is the apparent lack of staff and attendants, both to welcome you and to supervise the exhibits. This is in stark contrast to...More

Beautiful museum. But not for foreign tourists. You can ask for an audioguide, but there is so much noise in the museum that it is almost impossible to understand the audioguide. Above all is the explanation that you get too brief. A pity if you...More
