Looks great from the outside and very interesting to visit; however, they didn't accept card payments so we couldn't actually go on one of the tours. Very disappointed that it didn't warn us of this on their website as it is a long walk from...More

The main attraction of this boat is the history which is rather surprising for those who don't know about it. Of course, for younger visitors it may not be as interesting to listen/read about the boat's past, but there are still plenty of little doors...More
