Purchase your tickets for the Maritiem Museum online in advance. E-tickets allow you to visit the museum and the ships and cranes exhibits on the docks (called the museum harbor), permits fast lane entry to the museum, and provides discounts for the gift shop and parking.
At the museum, you'll need to leave your stroller on the docks when going into the boats. The boats are quite tight and require you to go down a ladder to enter the boats.
The Maritiem Museum is closed on Mondays. Plan your mini-adventure sometime between Tuesday to Sunday so you don’t miss this interactive museum!
