Have really enjoyed our visit to this museum. Nice overview of the museum by a video at the start and then 4 large rooms with eg one dedicated fully to a Dutch VOC that sunk in 1659. Can recommend

There was a bit of geography and pre-history reviewed and treasure recovered from sunken ships and there were models of old ships. Well worthwhile.
