Impressive 8-floor museum over world maritime history. Accessible to all including non-German speakers. Left the museum having enjoyed learning Can easily spend 2+h inside as time flies by. For a thorough visit, plan at around 4 to 6h.

Amazing exhibition. Hugh collection of model boats. And special theme areas about maritime life, clima, logistics and submarines. Worth a visit.

Beautiful museum. It's really well organized and complete. It explores all the aspect of navigation in a accurate way. Take your time to visit this museum, there are 10 floors really rich of contents. The only negative aspect is the absence of english descriptions in most of the items.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
