Spent a week in the area so called into the local museum. Met by two friendly volunteers who explained about the main museum and the temporary painting gallery. Worth a visit

This little museum is very quaint and reasonably interesting. Loved the painting by Waitt and some of the other exhibits too. Staff very knowledgable about all of the exhibits too.
