Not offered in english and no english reading material. It felt like the longest 2 hours of my life. It was neat seeing where the ship was being built but I wish we could have just skipped to that part. I wouldn't go back.

This is a must visit place when you come to Papenburg, although it is nothing much to wow but it is definitely worth to pay a visit whilst we couldn't find in KL/Malaysia.
