It's free of charge - must step in. Many little things about fishing included real boat with exhibition inside. On a way out don't forget to donate as its really deserved.

very small museum which just gives the right amount of information to families. Babies love to peep over the side of the boat to their friends and family below to say boo! best to visit it along with other sea life exhibits
