First very nice weather , and then the entrance ticket 50 % off this day. The museum is not so big, but there is a good overview. The vessel is nice but not the same standard as the other old vessel in the port

Great museum on the waterfront with excellent photos and displays; a real treasure house. Don't miss it. We spent 1.5 hours and could have spent more. Good English signage.

A great place to pay a visit. Nippon Maru is the key attraction here. Can take a tour in the ship and also stroll in the museum. Well maintained exhibits. Lot to learn from them. Worth a visit.

The museum and the Nippon Maru seem to be one attraction. Maybe not, but you can hit both at the same time. Tour the ship, then cool off in the museum. Really neat.

I went to tour the ship with my two small boys (5&3). We all loved it. Small hallways and stairs weren't noticed by them! It is a lovely ship and it was a good amount of exhibits (not too much, not too few).

Don't let the size of the museum put you off! It is small but very interactive and interesting. The staff are also very helpful if you need them. The location is prime, just across from cosmoworld and the cup noodle museum. It also over looks Nippon Maru Maorial Park which is a good place to stop and relax or bring... More

The wooden sail ship was really very nice, probably the closet feeling you can have to be a pirate or Peter Pan. Every other weekend during my 5 months stay in Yokohama I visit this area.Will not forget this memory!

A museum that you have to put in your should-go-list. A really comfort path to walk along, a very detail explanation in each section. Unfortunately the brochure in english only give a plenty information, while you are not allowed to take photo inside. so you cannot memorize the interest details. But overall, it's a really good museum!
