Where it is?
The Maritime Museum of Cantabria is part of the maritime front of the city of Santander, on the shore of the bay. Discover here the closest route from Castilla Termal Balneario de Solares.
Why is the Maritime Museum interesting?
It offers to the visitor one of the most varied museographic proposals, between those dedicated to the sea and to the men, offered in Spain. In its more than three thousand square meters of exhibition, it shows the marine life and all forms of relation of the man with the sea throughout its history.
Do you want to visit it?
The museum is divided into 4 floors and a total of 14 departments where you can learn through the marine flora and fauna. The visitor has the opportunity to enter into the waters of the Bay of Biscay, through aquariums where species of this sea coexist. After approaching the environment of the first permanent laboratory dedicated to the study of the sea, it explains and describes the diversity of environments and marine species of the Bay of Biscay. In the four sections in which the museum is organized we can visit:
- "Life at sea" (Nature-Marine Biology).
- "Fishermen and fisheries" (Fishing ethnography).
- "The Bay of Biscay and the sea in history" (Maritime history).
- "Technological vanguard facing the sea" (Maritime technology).
