An amazing experience. I cannot describe the imaginative ways and amount of information this place imparted. Celtic, Viking and maritime past. Brilliant. Well served by buses, parking in town. Good cafe on site with good friendly helpful staff.

A lot of thought has gone into this museum. It has been brilliantly put together and thought through. We spent a morning here going round. It really brings the early history of the Isle of Man to live. Highly recommended.
