The Museum of the World Ocean in Kaliningrad is an excellent Museum complex, very interesting for both children and adults. It will not be an exaggeration to say that this is probably the best museum in Kaliningrad and a must-see city attraction. Here you will find not only dry informative exhibitions "under glass", but also a lot of everything to "touch", including real ships that you can admire from the outside and from the inside. Moreover, some of them are famous all over the world for their glorious history. Brandenburg Gate in Kaliningrad

The main building of the museum on the embankment of Peter the Great was opened in 2003, and now it houses excellent aquariums with marine fauna, corals and cephalopods. It hosts exhibitions, conferences, presentations and other scientific and entertainment events. There are also general ticket offices of the museum, a souvenir kiosk and a "Soviet" canteen-buffet with set meals and pastries. A lighthouse with an observation deck rises above the building, from where the panorama of Pregolya and the cathedral is wonderfully visible.

Often at the entrance or in the hall of the building, you can meet a dog in a vest - a full-fledged employee of the museum. He gladly greets guests, but does not like to be photographed very much: he cannot sit still.

Exhibition buildings "Pakhaus" and "Morskoy königsberg" are located a little further along the embankment from the main one. These buildings, dating from the mid-19th century, house exhibitions dedicated to the life and history of Kaliningrad as a port city. In addition, two branches of the a Museum of the World Ocean are open at the Royal Gate ("The Grand Embassy"), as well as at the Friedrichsburg Gate ("Ship Resurrection") and in the adjacent area. The latter branch boasts a rather interesting collection of traditional boats of different nationalities, plus a bronze beggar cat in one of the barred windows. On holidays, all kinds of entertainment are organized in the open area near the gate.

On the main territory of the complex there are other attractions that attract tourists: the "Kant's bench" (a perfect remake: the philosopher did not sit on it) and the sculptural fountain "Putti" (officially - "Puttenbrunen") with cute angels. But it is much more interesting, walking around the territory of the museum, to look at and touch the real ships and their details displayed on the embankment: diving vehicles, bathyscaphes, anti-aircraft gun mounts, torpedoes, turrets. Curonian Spit in Kaliningrad

And even more interesting, of course, it to board one of the ships moored along the promenade, which also belong to the Museum. This research vessel "Cosmonaut Viktor Patsaev" is the only space communications ship in the world that has been turned into a museum. This is the epic polar icebreaker "Krasin", the former "Svyatogor", the second domestic Arctic vessel. This is the B-413 combat submarine, the Foxrot project, the only pre-nuclear submarine that remained in Russia, and even preserved in the same condition in which it was withdrawn from the country's Navy.

This is the honestly spent fishing logger SRT-129, which left a shipyard in Germany in the 1940s and was handed over to the USSR as reparations. And finally, this is the world famous "Vityaz", a research vessel that sailed 800,000 miles, which served as a place of scientific work for scientists from 20 countries of the world, and received Heyerdahl and Cousteau on board. On the ships, you can not only study the exhibition expositions, but also see the cabins of the personnel, go down to the engine room or go up to the wheelhouse.

The ships of the Museum of the World Ocean often host thematic exhibitions and events. For example, sometimes the ship's cook treats visitors to real "naval" food prepared right on the ship: the noble buckwheat meat porridge, pies and dried fruit compote.

Currently, a new, ultra-modern building of the Ocean Planet Museum is being completed. According to the project, it will be a unique spherical building on the embankment with a glazed atrium, multi-tiered galleries and panoramic windows. An educational center, expositions and storage facilities will be located here.
