  • Marvelous place. We have spent a rainy day in the museum. Nice collection of atrifacts, actual ships which can be climbed on. Beautiful exhibition about any aspect of sea cruising (including navigation, engines, history, fishing and lot more). Ships in the port are part of the exhibition.
  • Brilliant day out (assumingyou like boats). Lots of boats to look at and explore both on and off the water and good value too.
