  • This was very informative and enjoyable. Being able to climb down into the submarine and walk around the other ships gave us a real feeling of what the sailors must have experienced. A wonderful way to spend the day.
  • Great collection of War ships, weapons and the most interesting item was the "U Boat". It is bit expensive if you buy one time ticket. Season ticket would be good, if you plan to visit multiple times in a year. A cost effective option is to go 1. 5h before and then you will get a ticket with a discount of 40%. With a moderate speed 1 hour is sufficient to cover all the exhibits.
