  • Very interesting museum to visit
  • Nice little museum. It is of interest to both maritime fanatics and architecture/palace buffs as its the only palace in the city which you can visit (all others in the map are private). Entrance is €4. There are 2 main levels with interesting items and can take from 45mins to 1 hr for those who are interested. Worth a visti if tou have the time andseeing old furniture as well.
