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.

This is a great museum to visit. My only tip is to ask if they have any headphones for English commentary- we were not given any but there were signs on the way around stating number points for English commentary. Some displays have English and others not, do this would have greatly improved the experience.

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 submarine and the emigration section towards the end of the musuem is one of the most outstanding exhibits I've seen. We took 40 mins for sub and about 3 hours for the museum - could have spent longer.

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