Very nice place to go and see what things looked like in the past. You can climb a few stairs and have a nice view around and you can read about the history of the place.

This museum centres on a locally excavated Roman-era freight river craft used for carrying goods in the second century, probably for the Roman army. The boat sank with all its equipment on board and it is the ship as well as this equipment that is...More
