I was impressed by the museum itself. From the static displays to the audio visual displays. The volunteers who were in attendance were very helpful and friendly. I particularly liked the information provided in the various display cabinets. It was clear and concise without going into a massive amount of detail which probably would not have been read by the average punter. The museum is very keenly priced at $10 per adult. If you have a spare 60-90 minutes - visit the museum it is a great experience.…

Great little museum, and the staff were very helpful and informative. There are also discounts which apply for students and those over 60. It also has a small gift shop. A great place to visit on your way from the ferry to the town.

We all had a excellent visit and learnt loads about the amazing work done by the lifeboat teams over the years. John was really helpful and we hope other people can experience this wonderful place like we did!!

Great place for a quiet wander among the weather-worn exhibits of life and work as it was for the local fishermen and their families. Ask at the desk to see the video of the Port Phillip Pilots, as they transition from the old pilot vessels to the new diesel models. Check out the geological model of the underwater rock beneath the infamous Rip - one of the most dangerous entrances to a safe harbour anywhere in the world. A genuine old-style museum, without interactive animations, but actual boats, rigging, instruments, and belongings of seafarers from the tough early days of this tiny historic village.…
