The museum is outstanding in our view. The quality of the interpretation of the 3 aspects of Newbiggin - the fishing, the village and the lifeboat, is very high indeed. Not too cluttered, and clearly explained in the exhibits and information panels. The two films on loops are captivating - the 1941 propaganda film is a gem, and the emotions evoked by the fine film under the lifeboat stay with you for ages afterward. Very tasteful film, aesthetic and moving. Well worth a visit, although the architecture and location clashes somewhat with the old solitary profile of the church. The lady at the desk was realy informative about the museum layout.
Cafe staff were friendly and helpful, but the menu and food quality was a let down after the excellence of the museum.
