  • A maritime museum with varied collection and exhibitions, including both military and merchant vessels. Entrance can be bought separately for the main exhibitions and the ships. Full entrance fee is valid for two days, and with a good reason - if really concentrating on the exhibits, one day is not enough. Still, one day is well enough to get a good overview of the museum, and concentrate on a good selection of the overall collection.
  • A must visit if you like maritime history. Great seeing the ship my dad served on during his military service.
