The harbour hosts several old ships and you can even come aboard in some of them. Beware that it can be a little slippery when you walk the path between them (specially after raining). Inside the museum there is several floors (decks). And deck is...More

One of the best maritime ones I have seen. Besides an outdoor collection of old boats including one of the first automated grain offloads, the place has stunning internal surprises. The best is a simulated North Sea oil exploration setup. You are surrounded by moving...More

Great for all ages. We liked the fact that you can download an app which gives you extra interaction around the museum for example watching a short film in the same spot it was shot in history. Lots for children to do. We spent all...More
