Great and friendly atmosphere! Expect a good overview about the fishing business and the different aspects during its history There are various original tools and artefacts. Perfectly located close to the fishing dock in Palamos.

Wandered around for an hour and it was very interesting. The staff were very friendly and also helped with some tourist & restaurant enquiries. Most exhibits had multilingual explanations.
