This is a great museum with lots of opportunities to interact. Everything is extremely well presented and the sound effects are brilliant. Even as a non sailor I enjoyed the time spent there. There is no entrance fee.

A highly informative, free exhibition, full of interactive delights. We particularly enjoyed the film at the far end of the exhibition which is only temporary apparently. We also had a nice coffee in the cafeteria above with a fine view.

Sorry I didn't see this, yes there is parking but it's not so cheap so park further away as it's a nice walk down to the museum.
