This is a one of a kind but I found the $15 entry a little steep, however the story boards outside and being able to walk around the outside was satisfying. Positioned in the maritime historical district.

A very good display of photos and artifacts in this replica hut. We were lucky enough to have a guide that has actually worked down there and could tell us what day to day life was like.

Very interesting and educational. Could have spent more than the two hours reading and listening to the staff and their stories. Extremely brave group of men, almost boys, who ventured out into the unknown, very moving in parts.
