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.

Lithuanian Sea Museum Reviews
Очень хороший морской музей с богатой коллекцией рыб и других морских обитателей!! Представление в дельфинарии тоже рекомендую! Время потратите не зря! more »Very nice marine museum with a rich collection of fish and other marine life!! I recommend the performance in the dolphinarium too! You're going to waste your time!
Музей хоть и не слишком большой, но интересный. Классный большой аквариум в виде тоннеля, проплывающие над головой рыбы завораживают. Другие аквариумы тоже впечатляют - ярких рыбок, морских звезд, рыб... more »The museum, though not too big, but interesting. Cool large aquarium in the form of a tunnel, swimming over the head of fish fascinate. Other aquariums are also impressive - bright fish, starfish, fish, burrowing into the sand and completely merging with it, can be seen endlessly. And there live penguins, sea lions, seals, you can go to the dolphinarium for a performance, the ticket is purchased separately. In general, you can spend 2-3 hours there with interest, and if you get hungry, you can go to a cafe in the building of the dolphinarium. Parking is large and free, which can not but please.
It's a fun park, it has enough things to do for a few hours and is suitable for the whole family. There were a lot of cute and cool sea creatures, and it was more like a zoo than a museum. There is also a part of the place that is dedicated to ships, although I didn't go there.
Informative and interactive fun. You can spend there couple of hours, learn few, new things about sea world, watch live fishes in aquariums, varying from Lithuanian to tropical ones. Also you can enjoy some of the animals such as seals, sea lions and penguins upclose. Museum itself is located in old German fortifications which is also very interesting. Recommended.
