This is the original ocean museum in Stralsund before the Ozeanum was built. We checked with locals prior to going as we didn't understand the distinction. Apparently this has the tropical fish, corals, turtles and international and national exhibits where the Ozeanum focuses on the Nordic and Baltic seas. We only wanted to visit 1 place, given we had grandma... More

Visited the museum with two kids (6 and 8 years old). Had thought it was relatively small now that they had build the new Oceaneum too, but it just went on and on. We used a lot of time in there. Lots of displays and information on fishing, boats, the sea and oceans, a large area with aquariums with exotic... More

Nice museum in abandoned church. Aquariums are in the end, so if you have baby, do not waste time and their energy.

My wife and visited this new attraction on the Baltic coast on a cold day, and followed the orange line through this spectacular new building, past all the displays. These featured everything that lives in, on or flies over the North and Baltic Seas. It is a feast of models and live exhibits depicting man's involvement with the Seas over... More

The models of East German trawlers and the huge fishing nets make you realize how big fishing is ruining the oceans.

showing all you need to know about sea life and fishing. Nicely presented. Avoid cafeteria. Even though supposedly operated by one of the better hotels in Stralsund they have not managed to shake off the old DDR-feel in more than 20 years!

This is the old, original "sea museum" in Stralsund, the Ozeaneum is the new addition. While the Ozeaneum focuses on the ocean and everything connected, this one focuses on fishing & the sea. Here you'll find fish tanks with tropical fish and a large tank with big sea turtles (which the Ozeaneum doesn't have). There is also a collection of... More
