They have many very nice models of ships build in the city and the museum gives you an insight in its glorious past. It doesn't cost much, so it certainly is worth a visit. It's just a pity that they don't give you a tour...More

This was a real surprise. The museum is really interesting. Obviously you must be able to read Russian or have someone with you who can help. Many photos of soviet union heroes who were great contributors to the success of Nikolayev as a shipbuilders city.

I was given a tour of the University by friends and faculty. Was given the grand tour and really enjoyed myself. Was impressed with the knowledge of the nice young lady that was the curator, luckily I had an interpreter to help with the translation!

Great museum as for Ukraine. Liked it very much. This museum of Shipbuilding at least not worse than other Ukrainian museum of fleet in Sebastopol.

Visited this museum as the weather was not really good. Very nice museum showing the rich shipbuilding history of Mykolayiv. Lots of ship models and drawings showing what has been built since centuries.

I visited this museum in September 2014. This was a great educational museum visit for me as an American. I was pleasantly educated by this museum and the history of ship building in Nikolaev. A must visit for any American visiting Nikolaev.

This is nearly the best museum in Mykolaiv and the only of this kind in Ukraine. So it is definitely worth visiting if you happen to be in Mykolaiv. If you travel with kids, they are going to love it, too. Various models of ships...More
