“Small museum, worth the visit, free”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Well designed interesting exhibits. Make sure you go to the second floor to see what ships are expected thru the canal that you can see from the museum in Canal Park.

“Very small museum.”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

You can probably cruise through this museum in 30 minutes but some of the exhibits are interesting. Won't hold your interest for too long.
