I very interesting collection of items with great stories attached but at £5 for an adult ticket I would have expected a little more. It took little over half an hour to look at the complete collection.

A very interesting place with various activities around the museum for people to do. Good displays of all the finds complete with some of the most unbelievable items, including paper rupees from India!

Fascinating and so informative, brought to life by the engaging and informative video Martin has made which offers an insight into his life's work searching out and documenting the various wrecks, bringing the artefacts to life when you later encounter the displays.

We visited here yesterday & loved it. Great treasure hunt activities, coin rubbing, picture opportunities and a cool reading area. A cool little gift shop too for all your souvenirs.

Interesting collection of artefacts collected over a number of years. Give you a sense of the dangers that seafarers face every day of their working lives. Worth a visit.
