If happens that you are the student, you can use your student card to have a 50% discount. It was sad to tell you guys that all the stuffs were so old and the museum was quite small compare to Qingdao'e very owned museum.

Great for navy history buffs. Lots of old Navy planes, helicopters, submarine and 3 large ships. Unlike visit old navy ships in the US are free to roam around the outside of the ships without any ropes. No entry inside which would be cool. takes about an hour. 30Yuen for 1 hour was worth the visit.

Our 6-year-old was in heaven, getting to climb up on the tanks and up and down steps to explore the ships. Both kids thought it was great to be able to get up close and personal with all the things in the museum. As mentioned previously, there's not a lot for adults to read. However, please note: the entrance on... More

I hoped to see here two last soviet destroyers of "type 7" - the first Soviet destroyer class built before WW2. But now only one left, and IMHO this one also soon will be scrapped. The museum contains (as it was Aug 3, 2016) this old Soviet destroyer, 2 Chinese built ships (frigate and destroyer) afloat. No submarines. Only the... More

Saw this from the road. £1 entry. Lots of planes, missiles, helicopters, ships, guns etc rusting away in a yard. If this is your interest then you will have fun. 3 war ships in the sea too.

The museum itself was sort of laughable - laminated pictures thumbtacked to walls, for example - and had few English translations. There were some interesting things to look at, but not much else. Luckily for the museum, the outdoor area had a lot of cool things to look at - old tanks, jets, ships, and other military vehicles. It's not... More

There are so many things here and you can get very close. It looks almost like a junk yard. It's not very well presented but there's a lot.

Navy Museum locates near Signal Hill. I learned the development of navy there and saw the enormous warships, large missiles, armed planes and so on.

The museum is an open museum...meaning u get to see and touch the displays of old fighter planes, tankers etc up close n personal. U even get to go on board the navy ships. Definitely worth the admission fee.
