“Very interesting complex. Loved the ship!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Loved the ship replica in the Maritime Museum. The shell museum was also worth the visit, we just think it could be updated a bit though. A bit of tender loving care can go a far way.

“Well worth a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

A nice airy museum with a replica of the Dias sailing ship. Access to ship is easy but a guide would have been helpful. Make sure to drop into the acquarium while you are there. Lovely grounds too, in nice weather.
