Free entry. Everything here that you ever wanted to know about Ocean Racing. Very spacious and well laid out. Didn’t realise what a tough sport this is. Don’t miss it!

We only had 15 minutes before we had to get on the cruise ship. Not long enough to really appreciate all the exhibits but very glad to have seen what we did. It is free.

Free exhibition about the Volvo Ocean race, many interactive exhibits including a four person crew racing simulator. There was also a paid VR experience that wasn't open on this day. Quiet on a Sunday morning, open from 10am.

This is a nice well laid out attraction that explains the race and the conditions felt by the competitors very well. There is some very good video footage of life on the boats, and there are some interactive experiences for the young and old alike....More

Sorry I didn't see this, yes there is parking but it's not so cheap so park further away as it's a nice walk down to the museum.
