“Bigger inside than it looks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

One ticket covers this and the old harbour museum so worth doing both. There's a sound/slide show presentation infrequently in one room (I had to ask for itbut they were fine about setting it up even though there was only me). Lots of information boards and life size skeleton. I found it very educational eg I didn't know some types of whale(Baleen whales, the ones with no teeth) have 2 blowholes
