Original Benjamin’s Dry Sea Aquarium


As you enter the restaurant you are surrounded by one of the world’s largest collections of nautical antiques, large scale ship models and mounted sea creatures.

The large scale ship models are really a sight to behold and are very impressive. One of our largest models is the RMS Queen Elizabeth. It reaches 30 feet but is still only built on a 1:32 scale (1 foot = 32 feet).

Make sure you check out Megaladon and the local World Records mounts!
