The “Museo Tecnico Navale” at La Spezia is the Italian Navy’s most important museum. It is located near the main entrance of the La Spezia Dockyard and many rare and unique items are exibited in its two-story building, as well as in an open-air area inside. The Museum can’t be missed by anyone interested into Italian naval history: among the many items on display, a large collection of figureheads, memorabilia, assault craft, naval guns and weapons need to be cited, as well as a huge collection of models of naval ships of both world wars.
