This is definitely a place worth visiting. The variety in fauna and flora is amazing and you’ll most likely learn a lot about the seas and its wildlife. The building is also very beautiful and features an awesome exposition.

This place is amazingly beautiful. The museum is placed on a shoreside and has panoramic views. Don't miss their terrace and the fort type structure right next to the museum. There is a place to walk along the sea-line, which no one should miss.

Very pleasant representative at this tourist office. All questions, of which we had many were answered to our complete satisfaction. Taking the local bus was very easy and at two eurors a lot less expensive than the HOHO.

Lots of naval ships, mostly of US ships. Displays mostly behind plastic and very tight to move around. Maybe 1/2 hour to visit. With discount card, at €2.50 worth going to see.

This is a wonderful place for exploration, education and adventure. The nearby road is an access to the courtyard of the castle.

As another reviewer has noted, this should really be renamed "Model ship" museum as that's what 99% of the attraction consists of. That said, it was a pleasant enough way to spend an hour, and the models - not just of Naval ships but also...More
