Maritime Museum Of Pescara
The Maritime Museum of Pescara is located on the Promenade City. The Museum was founded in the fifties by Guglielmo Pepe, renowned 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 true civic museum. The Museum has a collection consisting mostly of different specimens of skeletons of Mediterranean cetaceans and sea turtles. Very interesting are the specimens of sperm whales and one fin whale. The collection is enriched with fishing and navigation equipment and tools, and a section of fossil conghiglie, cetaceans, Ichthyology and volatile. In this section it is worth mentioning a diving suit with relative pump, the reconstruction of a dolphin skeleton and a giant clam specimen, whose total weight amounted to 260 kg.
