Free entry but please leave a donation on your way out. Packed to the rafters with exhibits of the local area and people. Definitely worth a visit.

It's hard to give this little museum a top 4 or 5 stars as it is so small. However there are no real negatives, it's a quaint little museum at the end of the harbour. It's full of little artefacts from the local area. It...More

I know it was the end of November but it was very disappointing. There was very little open, including the aquarium. It was not easy to get a coffee. Car parking was easy and there were other sightseers around with nothing much to see. As...More

Lovely little museum packed to the rafters with artefacts. Worth popping in for a visit and chat with staff/volunteers as they are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Spent a very educational 45 minutes visiting the museum . Glad we decided to visit. Free entry but please donate something - it's worth it

Walking around and dodging the rain we stumbled across the museum. It was free and quite interesting. Thanks we liked it

Interesting history of the village, there's a lot more to see than you would expect. Lots of nautical items, as to be expected. Couldn't believe it is free - though of course, donations are welcomed. Well worth a visit.

Just didn’t expect a museum of this quality in a small village. This gave an interesting history of the village, with many artefacts spread over three floors. It’s free, though donations are welcome.
