The Shipwreck Museum contains a really interesting collection of artefacts. There are very informative descriptions on sheets. The whole museum is very well laid out. Very reasonable entrance fee of R50

The display on shipwrecks concentrates on details on a few wrecks around the Cape. =It was very well done with some poignant reminders. Outside there is an interesting collection of anchors (I'm serious!) and a house that seemed much like those I have seen elsewhere. About 40 minutes total.

Could do with some more displays on the generality of shipwrecks, may be show the numbers and dates of wrecks off the Cape and the Skeleton coast. Maybe also show how shipwrecks still happen but the advances in life-saving techniques. Maybe lose some of the displays in the house to make this a more specifically ship-wreck attraction.

A terrific collection of memorabilia from the multitude of shipwrecks around the Cape. Felt a wee bit sad when you consider the number of people who lost their lives here.
