    A very good museum. The exhibition inside is vast and varied. Every wing in the building covers different aspects of maritime history. The replica East India Trading ship, outside, is a must see!

    Erg leuk, modern en interactief museum. Er is zowel veel te zien als veel te doen. Erg leuk en interessant voor zowel kinderen als volwassenen.
