We had a guided tour as part of a cruise excursion. We learnt lots about history and the environment. The shell display was amazing taking me back to my childhood holidays collecting shells on beaches. Well worth a visit within easy walking distance from Hamilton.

We visited with our two teen aged boys. While the museum is small the exhibits were well laid out and interesting.The exhibits on the America's Cup and the items from sunken ships stood out.
