  • Totally worth it. Lots to see and there is even a theater in it. Learnt lots about surfing. The shark opener is so cute. A big thank to Bud for the great tour intro.
  • Wow this was such an adventure. Looking through all the photos, watching the videos and checking out the memorabilia. What great history, and the information is astounding. Don't need to get wet to check this experience
