Discover the history of the sea

Galata Museum

This is the largest and most innovative maritime museum of the Mediterranean Sea and it includes a full-scale Genoese galley (33 meters long) of the 17th century and a brigantine-schooner of the 19th century.
The Museum also displays 6000 original objects in its 23 rooms, enabling you to completely immerse yourself in the history of sea navigation.
The exhibition goes on with the voyages of Italian emigrants on board of steamships heading towards North America, Brazil and Argentina. There is also a part dedicated to contemporary migration movements.
