My kids enjoyed this museum. we spent a day within the area and this was one of a few we stumble across.....we certainly don't plan everything but cannot believe I didn't see this previously!!! It wasn't a planned visit but certainly worth a visit.

A bit disappointed really overall. The exhibits that are there are good, just a bit limited and not enough given all the history of the port. Can be done in 15 minutes. Good extra input from the friendly guide.
