Galata − Museo del mare

Museum Genoa, Italy

Discover the largest maritime museum in the Mediterranean Galata − Museo del mare

Located in the area between the Aquarium and the Maritime Station, the Galata museum is housed in the oldest building of the old marina, the Darsena, once the Arsenal of the Republic of Genoa. Since 1590, the galleys of the Genoese fleet were built and armed here. Today, in keeping with the past, the Galata is home to the Museum of the Sea, with an architectural reconstruction of great value designed by Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra. Thanks to an exhibition on four floors, and an Open Air Museum with the highlight attraction the S518 Nazario Sauro Submarine – the first floating museum in Italy –, the Galata is currently the largest maritime museum in the Mediterranean.
