We enjoyed our stop in here. Interesting facts about the swimming and water polo teams! Also the boat inside the museum made for a museum experience that all ages would enjoy.

Not just about fishing! There's also lots interesting information, images, films and objects relating to the history of the beach, the swimming club and the Pier. It's free and definitely worth taking a break from the beach to have look!
