We had come to La Spezia to walk the Chinque Terre but it was raining heavily so we looked for something "inside" to do and came across this museum - located at the entrance to the Naval Dockyard. There are no actual ships - no chance to clamber over a battleship or destroyer or so on - however there are... More

Nice naval collection which highlights the military significance of La Spezia back in the days. Cheap to visit as well. Great location to visit for any military enthusiasts.

We discovered this Naval Museum, next to the military and naval dockyards in La Spezia, and were surprised to be charged only 1,55 € each to go in. It has a really good collection of exhibits, ranging from original manned torpedos from WW2, to large scale models of old sailing ships. There was an unusually comprehensive exhibition of naval artillery,... More

Excellent museum with many naval stuff (cannons,miniature boats,medals, flags, guns from different periods). Perfect for a rainy day (it was in that day). Ticket only €1.55

Went in the naval museum to get out of the rain and only €1.55 entrance fee but found it fascinating. A lot of displays of various naval boats and warfare and artefacts, but my favourite was a photographic exhibition of expeditions in the 1960's and 70's,particularly the ones to a base in Argentina. Some stunning photos

I guess I had not done enough research about this museum, which was part of a day self guided in Spezia. At the time of writing, some of the best bits of museum are closed for 'refurbishment' and the rest of the museum, whilst of interest, particularly to specialists in the area, is in a sorry state. On our visit,... More

As a sailor I have the pleasure and opportunity to visit both naval and other maritime museums all over the world. As a devotee to the life on the high seas, these museums are something I never miss to put on my schedule when in port. This time I entered down the gangway as a passenger from a cruiseship. First...

Great collection of old torpedos, predating wwii. Rest of displays are just naval guns sitting on display. As a whole the displays need cleaning and arrangement. Museum seems like one that is under renovation, but can't see that any work is being done. Low cost and quick makes it worthwhile.

The website looked really good. However, when we visited, most of the museum was closed as it was undergoing refurbishments. The only part we saw was torpedoes, diving suits and nautical armaments. We were really disappointed.
