The exposition of the History Kronshtadt museum "Secrets of Sink Ships" is located in the building of an old water pipe tower on Leningradskaja street 2. It comprises unique items raised from the battleship Portsmouth, frigate Oleg, battleship Gangut and other warships and trade vessels. These weapon and household items lay on the bottom of the Gulf of Finland for over 300 years and they are witnesses of the past epochs and national heritage of Russia.

Kronshtadt is a town of sailors. Ships were constructed and equipped here; they used to leave the town to long way and round the world trips. Some of the ships never returned, but stayed in the sea forever. However memory of these ships was kept in the minds of the families and friends of the perished sailors. Therefore, the first museum of shipwrecks is preparing to open its doors exactly in Kronshtadt.

The huge horizontal sun dial, two fountains and the sculpture of the water-carrier are situated in the park nearby the museum. Outdoor exposition of the International Ecological Art Festival “Kronfest” is also located at the museum park.
