After their trip, one Tripadvisor user wrote: "This is more than a museum, it's the actual place where ships were designed and models of them tested. Going around the rooms and looking at the exhibits gives you a good idea of what it would have been like, and the helpful and informative guide took us through the history and what the machines and equipment - still in place - all did. Highly recommended."
