    Very well maintained, the Museum offers exciting discoveries! Our 6 year old son loved the prisons and the discoveries of the sunken boats. Me who loves the history I was not disappointed. The only problem is that we visited during a heat wave and the exteriors are in the Sun so it was hard physically with our son.
