Fantastic to see something so well preserved. The museum was well organised and had a large number of exhibits.

Although the ship is 300bc it is not enough to make a museum out of it. There is not enough relevant information and it's a large walk in the blistering heat to get to. Wouldn't go again

The shipwreck Museum is situated inside the Castle and is quite small. As well as the shipwreck there are a few artefacts to look at. I would not make a special trip to here, your done looking in 15 minutes.

Only went to see and explore the Castle but came across this gem. Amazed that they have salvaged the remains of this ship dating back to 300 BC. An assortment of artefacts are well displayed. Certainly worth a visit.
