I just took a quick look. The items on display were labeled and easy to view. Very interesting history of fishing. Enjoyed the aquarium and the boats on display outside.

Not huge but very open and user friendly. We had a guide who spoke reasonable English. He explained quite a lot and was very friendly and easy to ask questions of.

Very few items on display but what is there is well presented and interesting. It is a new construction and high quality museum.
