Get on board the fun!

An exciting journey to discover seas and oceans and the different boats created over the centuries to try to tame them and cross them. From the rowing boats to the sailing ships, from the geographical explorations to the great Italian migration, you can get on board a Genoese galley natural size, admire a section dedicated to transatlantic with nautical maps, explore the deck of a steamship and virtually maneuver the boat from the wheelhouse, visit the Armoury with helmets, armours and weapons that were put on the galleys, visit interactive rooms that show how was life on board, and get on board a lifeboat in the Hall of 4D Storm that will let you try the experience of a storm in the open sea.

Four floors, 23 rooms, a roof terrace from which to admire the harbour and the historic part of Genoa, a full experience for those who love sea and ships. Relax and emotions for the whole family, and the possibility to discover all the details on equipment and the technical parts of the ships, to know closely the life of sailors, slaves and commanders on the sailing ships.

In front of the Galata is moored the Nazario Sauro, the biggest Italian submarine that can be visited in the water, which provides the opportunity to experience the living conditions of submariners on board a real submarine!
