We visited the museum on a very wet day. It was a little busy but there was plenty of space and plenty to keep us interested. Lots of hands on exhibits that were informative. Tapestry was not to be missed. Great insight into the occupation.

Not the largest but very interesting. Tapestries of German occupation are wonderful. Has many photos of ancient mariners and captains. Nice collection of marine paintings.
