This outdoor museum is well worth a visit as it has replicas of the Victoria ( Magellan's ship ) and also the Beagle ( Darwin's ).It is very reasonable pricewise but best viewed in reasonable weather. The café does not accept foreign currency.

It began as a hobby, but so many people asked he made it into a museum. By the sea, watch for seals! Ships tiny, yet Age of Exploration and Discovery. Sailors slept on floors, until in Brazil they discovered hammocks. Interesting.
