- A thousand years of maritime history are revealed in creative ways on the harbour's edge. The museum features numerous restored vessels, some afloat in the marina. Daily cruises are offered on the scow, which sets sail when the cannon is fired at noon. Learn the stories of Polynesian voyaging, immigration, navigation and whaling. Meet Salty Sam! Use the interactive exhibits or join the model-makers workshop. There is also a café and store.
