  • Really very interesting museum, didn’t really want it to end. Definitely something for everybody. There is also a lovely boat top bar at the end.  more »
  • I loved this museum. You get access to a couple of boats which I loved and I am sure so would children. A lovely day out for the whole family and just a short walk away near the aquarium.  more »
  • A great place to learn about marine wildlife and about the variety of sea habitats.
  • This museum has many things to see. You could spend hours here. There is a fabulous bar on one of the boats which can be accessed without visiting the museum. It serves the best mojito in town.
