The total surface area covered by the Maritime Museum is 27,000 m2, arranged in 7000 m2 of indoor installations (exhibitions, media library, auditorium, store, cafeteria, etc.) and 20,000 m2 of outdoor exhibition areas, consisting of three dry docks. Around these, there is a promenade that allows visitors to walk around the outdoor exhibits and a long the river estuary.
