Photo Spot Details

This place is a museum related to boats and how they were constructed a few centuries ago. When you go there, you can discuss with people working as in the 17th or 18th century (printer, carpenter, pharmacist, etc…). We spend 4 or 5 hours there. I would bring a portrait lens and a wide angle lens (24 or 35mm equivalent, or even wider) with large aperture (f/1.4 is of course the best): many of the things to see are inside, so you want to be able to capture enough light to avoid pushing the ISO too high. Bringing a macro lens or an extension tube is also advised.
