“Surprisingly large and interesting ”

German Oceanographic Museum (Deutsches Meeresmuseum)
Ranked #2 of 27 things to do in Stralsund
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2015 via mobile

Visited the museum with two kids (6 and 8 years old). Had thought it was relatively small now that they had build the new Oceaneum too, but it just went on and on. We used a lot of time in there. Lots of displays and information on fishing, boats, the sea and oceans, a large area with aquariums with exotic fish.

Nice museum in abandoned church. Aquariums are in the end, so if you have baby, do not waste time and their energy.

My wife and visited this new attraction on the Baltic coast on a cold day, and followed the orange line through this spectacular new building, past all the displays. These featured everything that lives in, on or flies over the North and Baltic Seas. It is a feast of models and live exhibits depicting man's involvement with the Seas over the centuries, the energy of the waves, and the problem of industrial scale fishing- a breathtaking and authoritative lesson for us in a visit that lasted for over 3 compelling hours, with the strap line "what we know is a drop in the ocean of what we do not know"! Afterwards, we just had to enjoy a mouthwatering ice cream in the quayside cafe. Strongly Rrcommended for a visit.

The models of East German trawlers and the huge fishing nets make you realize how big fishing is ruining the oceans.
