What a great little museum this is and the ride around the docks on the tug boat was tremendous. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice tearoom with sensible prices. Will certainly go again.

It’s free to enter the museum. There was a charge for the boat trip, can’t remember how much but very reasonable.
