  • Not many visitors at this time of year, so we had quick access to everything. The VR was good, as was the East Indiaman. Also enjoyed the life on board game. Enjoyable, but could learn from Portsmouth...  more »
  • Not much publicized, it is still a beautiful museum: The replica of the sailing ship moored next to the museum is open to visitors and is very well made. Even more interesting is the visit aboard the small steamship moored near the sailing ship. still working!!! A little disappointing, instead the assortment of the material on display inside: The rooms are quite empty and with few pieces of military, technical and/or historical interest.
