Galata Museo del Mare

Galata Museo del Mare

The Galata Museo del Mare, curated by Mu.MA and managed by Costa Edutainment, is located in Genoa and is the largest maritime museum in the Mediterranean that allows you to take a journey through the history of navigation.

The museum is housed in the Galata Palace, whose renovation was entrusted to the Spanish architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra.

Here it is possible to admire some autographed documents of Christopher Columbus, an original Genoese galatea and the raft with which Ambrogio Fogar and Mauro Mancini escaped to safety after being hit by a storm off the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic Ocean.

The experience continues with the great ocean crossing of Italian migrants aboard the steamers to America, Brazil and Argentina: within this pavilion - MeM Memories e Migration - a section is entirely dedicated to contemporary immigration (renewed from June 2016). Navigation above but also under the sea with the exclusive visit of the submarine Nazario Sauro, the first museum ship in Italy that can be visited in the water. The public can also virtually relive the experience of a shipwreck on Cape Horn in the new 4D Storm Room.
