    Really fun little museum. Lots of fascinating little exhibits. I'm a boat nerd so I'm biased, but was good enough to keep my mates' attention as well. That's a great achievement. Guide was an absolute legend

    Haven't been inside. Apathetic staff unable to tell me what they show, and unable to compare it to Brisbane's. What are you paid for guys? Furthermore was closing at 3pm!
