“Probably the best Mykolaiv museum”

The Museum of Shipbuilding and Fleet
Ranked #3 of 32 things to do in Mykolayiv
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 October 2012

This is nearly the best museum in Mykolaiv and the only of this kind in Ukraine. So it is definitely worth visiting if you happen to be in Mykolaiv.

If you travel with kids, they are going to love it, too. Various models of ships and arms collection would be particularly fascinating for them, I believe. There’s also an open air arms exhibition in front of the right wing of the museum, in a small garden.

The museum is large, and the exhibition is huge, versatile and consistent. It represents the entire history of ship-building in the area, from the early navigation attempts in ancient Rus through Tsarism and Soviet era up to the independent Ukraine (which seems to sadly be marked with the decline of the industry).

I could wander around it for hours, especially that there weren’t (alas!) too many other visitors, so the access to all exhibits was easy.

The museum attendants left very positive impressions: pleasant, caring, not indifferent to what they do. Many of them invited my attention to the best exhibits in their halls as I entered.

In July 2012 the entrance was UAH 15 (ca US$ 1.85) only. Photography was allowed inside. There’s no café or restaurant or souvenir shop, and the only available information about the museum is limited to small leaflets in colour.
