What Our Visitors Say

A fabulous and very well-presented museum. Staff are very friendly and being attached to a coffee shop, we were able to spend a comfortable time there.

The museum didn’t disappoint. Kids loved the simulators and the boat. There is also a viewing area overlooking the harbour, the cafe and souvenir shop. We learned lots of new information. I can recommend for visiting.
