Although the building isn't in the best shape and some of the displays aren't professional this is still worth a visit to see hundreds of years of Russian Naval history. Hire an English translator if you do not speak Russian or you won't get anywhere...More

Huge amount of detail about the actions of the Northern Fleet, together with rare photographs and memorabilia. An imposing building that has clearly seen far better times.

The museum has got great artifacts and paintings, although the building itself had seen better times. Amazing people work there, their general knowledge is unbelievable - unfortunately Russian is the only language you can communicate with them. You will need at least 2-3 hours if...More

This museum is located quite a distance from the centre (around 7km) and is just a little too far to walk it comfortably (especially if it is raining). One option is to take trolley bus 4 and then walk about 2km to the museum. Or...More

As other reviewers have said, the building is in dire need of external and internal renovation, and there are no obvious signs outside to say it is a museum except a small printed notice on the door. I went with a friend on the last...More
