There are lovely points like reali life models of ships. Some aspects didn’t meet our understanding. Hence there were no signs in English, though overall it is very nice place to see and visit.

This is a great museum to visit. My only tip is to ask if they have any headphones for English commentary- we were not given any but there were signs on the way around stating number points for English commentary. Some displays have English and...More
