4.4
#1 of 7 in Museums in Klaipeda
Set in a restored 19th-century fort, Lithuanian Sea Museum and its onsite aquarium explores humans' relationship with the ocean and the life of marine animals. In rooms that were once gunpowder storage cellars, visitors can admire ship models and archaeological artifacts accompanied by informational displays about Lithuanian seafaring. Exhibits on the history of marine life tackle subjects such as evolution, the fauna of the sea, and dangerous ocean creatures, both real and legendary. At the aquarium, you can meet a diverse array of fish including freshwater species, creatures from the Baltic Sea, and tropics dwellers. Outdoor pools are home to seals, sea lions, and penguins, and the adjoining dolphinarium hosts dolphin shows. Check for show times when you arrive.

  • Actually, for the sake of the maritime museum we have specially come to Klaipeda. Inexpensive entrance. Not a bad museum. There is a corridor with glass walls and a ceiling where the big fishes swim over you. There are swimming pools with sea seals and penguins. Feeding of animals in the pools-in the period from 13:30 to 14:10. Interesting show at the Dolphinarium for an extra fee. It is free to climb the ships standing near the Maritime Museum. If you go from Klaipeda-then plus to the whole trip by ferry. To go for only the euro on the boat-where else you can find this opportunity. There is a café in the museum. But the range is not impressive. If you get hungry-especially on this café do not hope.

  • Interesting exposition of the Museum of the Sea and excellent performance in the recently modernized Dolphinarium. Pleasure is guaranteed not only for children, but also for adults.

  • A must see when visiting Klaipeda. The museum exhibitions were captivating and informative, staff was great at being proactive and answering our questions. The aquariums are sparkling clean and the animals look healthy. The exhibit is not as big as London's aquarium, but it is so much better than London's in every possible way!
  • Really nice place to visit. Although not the biggest aquarium I've seen, I was still quite impressed. Definitely worth visiting, especially because tickets are only 7 Euros for adults.
