Very interesting collection of artefacts and memorabilia housed in what was once a boat builders premises. Spread over 3 floors it covers a wide range of industries and many periods of history. Well worth a visit!

A very interesting snapshot of bygone days in the area, with some interesting interviews screened of people talking about their memories. Lots of interesting artefacts to bewilder and bemuse all.
