Went here after lunch. It's an inside outside musical and covers maritime history. Kids loved it. Well worth the €20 family ticket. Beautiful town steeped in history.

Spent so much time in this beautiful and interesting museum. Indoor and outdoor exhibits. Ideal for all the family, sea-farers and beachcombers alike. Super photography exhibition on too at time of our visit, which was a bonus.

Not only an interesting museum building with lots to see and admire but an opportunity to go on five different boats to get a feel of what life might have been like at sea. I would recommend a visit. Not very expensive either.
