  • We took part of the afternoon to see it. It is reduced with multiple informational and interactive displays. Models. As well as showcases with underwater archaeological remains. To spend some time.

  • All an experience that you dips in the archaeology underwater, something quite unknown for many while fascinating, and in the history of the trade marine with many details. The projection interesting and the disposal of the Museum in form of boat it makes entertaining and fun.
