Kids love to see the pirates of the caribbean yacht, its in a really peaceful area which is a lovely walk away from the busy city centre, but still really central. Definately worth a visit

Sadly only open 10.00 - 14.00 in winter but well worth a visit. The displays were good and children will love being able to try their hand at sailing techniques. Good also for the biographical details on many of the skippers since the 70s.

Came across this by accident whilst seeking shelter from a rain shower. Turned out to be excellent, informative and entertaining.

We love sailing and this museo is great. Interactive, cool, exciting, informative. The entrance fee is well worth the price. The video's are great and you feel as if you can be part of this exciting adventure called the Volvo Ocean Race. We loved this.

Very resticted opening hours and at 5 euro each - poor value. The place seemed like a ghost town. Maybe it had had a better vibe in high season.
