A free local museum. Friendly staff. Spent an hour indoors here on a cool breezy damp day looking at local objects and stories - centred around fishing, farming, Victoriana. I found it interesting.

On a cold, rainy day, we were happy to find this little gem. 3 floors packed with fascinating stuff. It kept us happy for much longer than we expected.

Really good and free what more could you ask for? A view on the past of both the harbour and the locale.
