We all enjoyed this little museum. You can tell it is well loved by the locals. Very interesting local war time history and room sets. Air raid shelter in the garden. Victorian school room across the road was interesting too. Lovely staff.
A well laid out spacious collection of numerous aspects of maritime history. Great dioramas.
My wife is nor particularly interested in boats but she thoroughly enjoyed this museum. Well done to planners and the couple who were on duty last Saturday, 30th Aug.

A lovely, compact museum that charts the maritime history of the area. Of particular interest was the exhibition about all the preparations for D-Day that took place locally and the secret weapons that were tested on local beaches

I would say this museum is not wheelchair or scooter friendly as it is on 2 floors (no lifts) and the door widths would not be big enough. I can't remember if if there are steps up to the entrance or not.
