Apparently there is no permanent exhibit space and one takes a chance on whatever the temporary exhibit happens to be. Currently it is about toys associated with the sea and I was really not interested in looking at dolls and toy boats. Fortunately the admission...More

This museum is small and houses one rotating exhibit; when I went, the exhibit was about nautical-themed toys throughout history in San Sebastián and Spain in general. I thought it was fascinating and unique. This museum would be a great place to take kids because...More

Located in a 18th century house next to the aquarium this small museum is devoted to the local rich maritime history. Interesting information but a bit too didactic and drawn out for our liking. Surely worthwhile for anyone with an interest in the subject.

Opening hours are odd but definitely worth a visit. The display was about women and the sea and they had a leaflet in English that we could borrow. You don't need long but on a rainy day - a must.

The naval museum hosts many items belonging to the rich naval history of the town, naturally. The highlight for me was the one-hour film they showed on the history of cod-fish hunting. Must see!

We visited the musem and not the aquarium which may be why our experience differs from other reviewers! The exhibition is on two floors and consists solely of artwork relating to the area, some modern and the more interesting going back to the 18th/19th centuries....More
