Museum of the Sea

The Pescara Sea Museum is located on the city's waterfront. The Museum was founded in the 1950s by the will of Guglielmo Pepe, a famous veterinary doctor with a passion for the sea. The Museum initially consisted of a small collection of marine specimens and tools related to the sea and fishing. In 1981 it was reopened to the public as a real civic museum. The Museum presents a collection consisting mostly of various specimens of skeletons of Mediterranean cetaceans and sea turtles. Very interesting are the specimens of sperm whale and one of fin whale. The collection is enriched with tools and tools for fishing and navigation, shells and a section of fossils, cetaceans, ichthyology and birds. In this section it is worth noting a diving suit with its pump, the reconstruction of a dolphin skeleton and a specimen of giant clam, whose total weight amounts to 260 kg.
