This museum is tiny and free! It outlines different aspects of local life and the shipwrecks along the coast. There are bits and pieces to buy and it is run by friendly staff.

We stumbled upon this Mortehoe Museum by accident during our walk through the Village. This Museum is small but is packed with lots of information and history on the local area. Surprisingly it was FREE too; donations welcome at the exit. Well worth the visit.
