"One of the best museum/experience I've visited in a long time. The exhibition is very well laid despite the fact it was being rearranged at the time of our visit. You can spend as little or as long a time learning about this extraordinary ship. Then you have the ship itself. Amazing. You walk around it and it's not difficult to imagine how tough life on board must have been. "
