  • The price is fine (€3) but it's all just a bit boring and basic. Might suit kids a bit better. The information is well translated but noting wow about it  more »
  • Wonderful museum with lots of hands on exhibits and displays for children. Very high tech and well designed. Great info on Phoenician, Roman and medieval sea travel and shipping.  more »
  • We used the audio guides which were 2 euros but they were hardly needed such was the clear explanations on both English and Spanish. An enjoyable 3 hours.  more »
