This small but very interesting museum has lots of maritime artifacts. I was amazed at the 13th century rudder. No entrance fee!

A variety of exhibits displayed well in a relatively small space. Next door to the Fisherman's museum so handy enough to do both. Absolutely free.

This place is indoor (in case it rains), and semi interesting. While it is small it is free. Could do with more things to do

We found this museum after riding the miniature railway to the East Cliff, and were glad we did. It is a fascinating museum anyway with well set out exhibits, but what really made our visit was the personal approach taken by Tim. He spent a...More
