Lots of stairs and good views. Lots of information with interesting facts. We spent a few hours walking around learning historical facts about sunken ships and their cargo and there are also examples of tools, armour and weapons that were used in the past.

As part of our tour of St Peter's Castle this was included. They have three old ships from as early as 500 BC and the items they carried. It was a nice attraction but would not have paid extra
