This was a very nice, quiet, clean museum. It was nice for adults but still had areas for children. Great view of the harbor.

It gives some brief maritime history. Good to bring children there. My child tried to load containers on a vessel and sail a vessel. He enjoyed a lot!

street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
