The Elissa was fantastic but the museum was a bit lackluster. The Elissa is a self guided tour. My husband was very impressed with the number of voyages the boat made in just the first 20 years of use.
For those interested in ships and this one still sails a few times a year and they take volunteers to be on the voyage. A ship with much history and it is a joy to see it.

You can climb below deck to see the working and living quarters of a real transport ship that not only brought goods from the Old World, but intrepid settlers from Europe hoping to find a... 更多
