It is is full of models and photos of old boats and not much else, there is no information and it a bit rubbish. I wouldn't waste your time.

We discovered this gem museum with a audio tour of Piraeus from VoiceMap. The display about the Greek maritime history are very interesting.
If you are a boat geek like me you should definitely visit.

Visit took about 40 minutes, you can stay longer if you wish but we saw all the displays in a good timing. A must if you are into Nautical things like my husband!

We were particularly taken with the marvellous details on Triremes, which were of the utmost importance in securing the Athenian empire in antiquity. An account of their conception, scale and naval effectiveness was engrossing to peruse.

Athenian triumph, mediated with Triremes, at the Battle of Salamis against the vastly superior Persian forces resulted in Xerxes retreating back to Asia.

The arrival of Greek oil tankers in the 20th century courtesy of Onassis and other magnates played a seminal role in the world economy.

This vast sweep of maritime events and influence is well covered and reflected.

If you are interested in maritime history the Hellenic Maritime Museum in Piraeus is a must if you are in the neighbourhood. Lots and lots of interesting information and very well-made scale models of a variety of ships. Entrance fee is only EUR 4.

A small museum with great interest. The maritime history of Greece is presented in this beautiful museum, with collections of the Independence War the 1st and 2nd WW and many exhibits reflecting the importance of the Sea for the Greeks.The result is the formation of the greatest merchant marine fleet in the world, holding the 1st position for many many years. A must for the sea and history lovers.

The museum is located next to the Pireaus marina. It is a relatively small place, and appears dated in some areas. Nonetheless, it is well stocked with various maritime and naval artifacts, including ship models, paintings, uniforms, medals, weapons, and more. It also has an adjoining library and gift shop. I would visit if you are nearby, but would not go out of your way.

We didn't go in the museum as we were on a tight time schedule but were able to view the outdoor exhibits which were very interesting.

The exhibits are fascinating. A egyptian papyrus boat, classic trieremes, ancient amphorae retrieved from ancient wrecks, hundreds of models of ships, from the byzantine dromons to the revolution's trading-war ships, until the modern history of the Balkan wars and WWII. Everything you expect to see in such a museum: weaponry, uniforms, lots of photos, recreations of important sea battles... Yet... the experience was similar to that when you go searching in an attic or a basement. The showcases were old, the air felt musty and the lighting wasn't enough. It definitely worths a visit though something should be done about the place immediately.
