A good view of Italy's maritime past. Highlights for me were the historic Genoese maps and the model of the Genoese Galley. The story of Italian emmigration was also very well told, with lots of videos and an excellent mock-up of the emigrants sleeping quarters....More

Several floors ... You need audio guide , limited english descriptions. Good reproductions of older ships. A little ecclectic in terms of topics, emigration, immigration, boat designs, etc

Great museum dedicated to Genoese maritime history, ships and people's lives. It is very interesting and lots of exhibits are interactive. There are also a 4D storm simulation and few real life models of ships and a submarine. The museum is so big and attractive...More

A fascinating experience with so much to see and do - especially for younger visitors. I particularly enjoyed the display of old maps and the 'emigrazione e immigrazione' exhibition on the third floor. So well presented and explained!
