Meander through the museum that depicts an abundance of artefacts retrieved from shipwrecks which are believed to be over 800 years old. From smoking pipes, beer mugs, sailor shoes and artillery, the museum is one spectacle you do not want to miss out on. However the place was devastated by the 2004 tsunami and was later restored back to and was officially unveiled in March of 2010.
