The Shipwreck Museum tells fascinating stories of the shipwrecks which have been discovered around this area. We have many artefacts recovered from these ships on display. The Museum also explores the remarkable geological and environmental circumstances that have helped to preserve these shipwrecks.
The Shipwreck Museum is ideally sited in the middle of the shoreline ‘maritime park’, and has been visited by over a million people, including numerous Schools & Groups, since it opened in 1986. The entire museum is on one level and is an accessible venue for the disabled. The stories of ships are international: particularly involving Dutch, French, German, Danish and British history, so visitors from abroad are particularly welcome.
