As other reviewers have commented, this is still sealed off with people arriving and leaving, disappointed as we were, not to get a closer look at the boats.

Visited this incredibly interesting attraction but in Jan 2017 it was still closed. No indications as to when it will reopen. The nearby Monastery should be worth a visit but it closes during lunch hours. The area is beautiful and well kept.

Not much parking in the area and the exhibit is quite small and a little kitsch! The 3 replica boats were ok to walk into and see or imagine what life on a ship could be like but the exhibits outside did not look too...More
