  • The exhibits were creatively presented, so I really enjoyed this visit..worth visiting especially with kids.  more »
  • Visited with a 4 for 3 card. Heavily interactive and great fun. Lots to see. Helps if you have some interest in boats, but one of the best museums I have every visited.  more »
  • We wanted to see the Occupation tapestries and are so glad we did because they are spectacular. However if, like us, you hired a car for your stay you will find that there are no parking facilities adjacent to the museum for its visitors. Be prepared for a walk as the nearest car park is some distance away...surprising for such a prestigious exhibition.☹
  • Excellent. Plenty see and read, films are very informative. Some interactive exhibits are good fun. This is not, however, a place to bring very young children as all they want to do is run about and press any and all buttons which could spoil the enjoyment of others.
