Genoa: The Galata Sea Museum
Visit the biggest Italian maritime museum existing
Galata is the Museum of the Sea in the dock area of Genoa harbour, the biggest Italian maritime museum existing. More than a museum it is a journey through time, from the epoch of the galleons down to submarines, through the epochs of the pirates, the sailing boats, the migrations…
Exploring the Galata Sea Museum one can disguise as a Genoese merchant, climb on a 19th century brig, or see the precise and philological reconstruction of a 16th century galleon. Then the whole 3rd floor is devoted to migrations, both the emigrations of Italians towards the Americas, and the immigrations of North Africans towards Italy.
