A really informative local museum which perfectly summarises the key historical influences that have helped to shape the town over the centuries. I'd recommend coming here to contextualise the town early on in your stay/visit, as it explains so many features found in the town from whale bones to boats to Cook.
Parking was a pain though, and we had to try several times for a suitable space to become available by the rear door as advised on the website - they had a meeting when we wanted to visit and I suspect some visitors took up the disabled spaces and were there for a number of hours. If accessibility is an issue this is a consideration. However, once inside no issues whatsoever and the staff were superb and a real credit to the site. Really enjoyed the visit.
