The Aquarium and Maritime Tradition Museum in Vodice is the first of its kind in the County of Šibenik and Knin opened in 2006 consisting of two floors of altogether 300 m2.

The Museum contains old fishermen's tools, ship models, but also the objects found on the maritime archaeological sites dating from the 3rd century B.C. to the Middle Ages.

The Aquarium consists of 18 units, 50 fish species and 150 fishes originating exclusively from the Adriatic Sea classified after their habitats in the shallow and deep waters (mostly fishes probable to find in the waters of Šibenik, Vodice and Kornati). Besides 16 aquariums containing flora and fauna of the Middle Adria, it is also possible to see the ship models of Gajeta Falkuša and St. Jeronimus as the oldest ship representations on the Mediterranean.
