The new Oceanographic Museum OZEANEUM is located on the city’s historic waterfront immediately adjacent to the historic centre which has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With a striking skyline of restored warehouses and visible traces of its former use, the entire port island district remains to this day an autonomous, distinctive architectural monument on the outskirts of the historic city centre. The OZEANEUM building relates to the sea, rather than to the buildings of the old town.
