In the beautiful old mansion, home of the Scarboroughs in the early 1800, the Ships of the Sea Museum has mounted an outstanding display of model ship important in the history of the coastal area.

If you like maritime history, be sure to give it a go. It's very well done. The old mansion housing the museum is also quite attractive.
