Музей маленький и как мне кажется только для тех кто "в теме". Фото яхтсменов, яхт, какие то данные, все это непонятно и неинтересно, имхо. Симулятор тоже ерунда.The Museum is small and seems to be only for those who are "in the subject". Photos of yachtsmen, yacht, any data it all incomprehensible and uninteresting, IMHO. The Simulator also nonsense.show original

Me gusto el museo pero podría estar mejor mantenido y ser mas grande.El personal no ayuda mucho a que uno se emocione en el museo.I liked the Museum but could be better maintained and more large. The staff doesn't help much to be one thrill in the Museum.show original

A fascinating insight into the phenomenal challenge presented to both competitors and organisers who participate in the tri-annual Volvo Ocean Race. The Museum is co-located with the Global Headquarters of the Volvo Ocean organization in the port from which the race starts. A comprehensive multimedia display is on offer here, with examples of yachts from previous races on permanent show outside the building.
It's free and has a pleasant staff. You get to learn things you probably never thought would be interesting, but i was! Definitely worth a visit. The downside was that som of the things to do was out of order.
Alex MoriloBetter to go for a coffee to the port and watch information of truth in specialized portals. A disaster and fatal to park. Facilities few. A penaltyshow original
