Nice little historical museum. It's about $5 to enter. Staff is friendly and eager to talk about the history. Good little spot to get away from the massive beach crowd as well. Stop at the bar when you exit for a beer or 2.

Extremely helpful and knowledgable staff on hand to explain and contextualise further. The bar downstairs is friendly...More

I don't think the museum has its own dedicated parking but I'm pretty sure there's parking nearby.
