This is one of the best and purest maritime museums anywhere. Set in a thirteenth century Crusader castle built on the site of the ancient Halicarnassus, the museum building itself oozes history.
Bodrum has been described as the Turkish San Tropez. It is a bit like that but is really more attractive for being significantly less expensive and rather warmer. The museum is located in the centre of that lovely old town.
This is a good one. Built into one of the enormous forts guarding the entrance to the charming small harbour in Dubrovnik, the location is perfect. There is constant contemporary seagoing activity going on right outside its windows.
