  • Very beautiful and varied Museum. There are several halls about the history of fishing with a variety of subjects. Separately with aquariums and aquarium with open bath/swimming pool, where you can omit the hands and iron fish. In the new hall with modern multi-media Exposition about nefteplatformah and parks of windmills in the sea. And on the street pretty much everything-and launches, and bones of whales, and fully fishing port, and a large playground with beasts. Very interesting! You will like it!
