Currently the museum has about 10 galleries, an aquarium, a library, a children's activity room, a 4D multimedia room, cafeteria, souvenir shop and open air amphitheater. The initial galleries depict the history of the building and its restoration and conversion into the museum along with the original objects and machinery found in the premises that have been restored beautifully including a near real replica of the actual workshops. The brick furnaces have been restored to their original state. The next section of the galleries are dedicated to navigation instruments and finally on the various rituals in Odisha associated with its maritime past. The aquarium has a great collection of aquatic life.
Overall a great introduction to the maritime history of Odisha.
