  • Excellent experience and enjoyed visiting there to see ancient practices, culture and equipment for sailing, fishing and other related activities. There are several boat models (around 10) and the biggest one in the center of the attraction. You can learn a lot for the local life in the past and how the locals were hunting for pears in the gulf. Some activities and games for elder and kids related to boating, shipping and astronomy. Its second time visited there. Also seen some changes which did not let me bore. Worth spending time there.
  • One of the most well maintained museums I ever visited. All neatly organized!
  • History reflects... information's are short but they hold all the meanings. wonderful experience..A huge boat took my heart...
  • Brilliant place to see, lots of history. Most enjoyable with memories of back home, Lamu, Maldini and Mombasa on the Kenyan coast line.
  • great educational place with a section of interactive old sea apparatus and compass.
