  • Really fantastic place to visit and bring kids. My 4yr old and I went today for the first time and he loved it. His first 3D movie and the opportunity to explore a submarine as well as other awesome ships. Really a memorable experience. Staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and a huge thanks to all the kind volunteers who brought it all to life.
  • With working machinery, model ships and diving gear to interactive displays there are plenty of interesting things to see and learn at the maritime museum. Paid sections change to suit themes. The following photos are in the free section of the museum. It is wheelchair friendly with great amenities and an awesome gift shop. Highly recommend taking the time to visit it.
