The entry fee is cheap and honestly there is not so much to do. There are tanks to climb on and planes etc to look at. Only one ship was accessible, the others including the submarine were not accessible.

We actually not been inside. But you can see many ships from outside. There are big warships and also a submarine and a hoovercraft to see. I'm sure if you are interested in Navy stuff it is very nice there

Our 6-year-old was in heaven, getting to climb up on the tanks and up and down steps to explore the ships. Both kids thought it was great to be able to get up close and personal with all the things in the museum. As mentioned...More

I hoped to see here two last soviet destroyers of "type 7" - the first Soviet destroyer class built before WW2. But now only one left, and IMHO this one also soon will be scrapped. The museum contains (as it was Aug 3, 2016) this...More
