This is a great place and being local you never tend to visit. We did and it was well worth it - the place is really well presented and staff are on hand to assist or you can just enjoy at your leisure - on a nice day it's a lovely walk along the quay.

The museum itself is quite nice. There are many displays and a few interactive areas for children to explore. However without a vivid interest in maritime history, it is perhaps somewhat difficult to be truly engaged with subject matter. However as I live very close to the museum I was interested to visit and think others should too. It is certainly an easy way to spend an hour or two. It has a very small cafe facility also, so can be used as a rainy day place to go.

Best museum we've been to. Friendly welcome and affordable cafe too. Started with introductory film as recommended by the friendly lady in the cafe. Quiz really kept the kids interested throughout the visit. Also good interactive activities. Well worth a visit. Kept us all entertained for over 2 hours.

Located very close to our hotel, we visited this place on a chilly weekend afternoon. Very informative museum with a lot of content. Quite a "wordy" museum with not a huge amount of artefacts, this is probably not designed for children under 10. Very enjoyable.

Very friendly staff, very interesting place. Watched a 20 min dvd when we arrived about the shipping on the waterways in years gone by, Worth popping in.
