Maritime Museum was totally cool. It is basically a collection of six ships, some restored, some replicas and the exhibitions within the ships.

You can learn a lot about maritime history, get to know how ships worked and get the atmosphere of the era. I loved Medea and the Star of India. One of the general favorites is usually the Soviet submarine, we could get into all the rooms and facilities, it was fascinating.
