We really enjoyed this museum on the ship. It transports you back in time. You can see the cabins, machine rooms etc and have an amazing view from the top deck! I recommend going at sunset time.
There's entrance fee for this museum. I don't know the inside. It would be better if you buy the ticket together with Nebuta museum, they cost you cheaper if you buy the package price for both museum. You can buy the package ticket at Nebuta museum
