A short distance to the east of the Dick King statue at the bottom of Gardiner Street is the Maritime museum. It is set on-board three South African ships - two tug boats, the Ulundi and the JR More, and a minesweeper, the SAS Durban. There are artifacts, photographs and memorabilia relating to Durbans long-standing relationship with the sea, and what better place to house such a museum, than on three seafaring vessels. As a result, the whole experience gives even the hardiest landlubber a taste of the sea.
