A super little museum well worth a visit, a tiny section of history on a ferry port used by thousands.

The museum starts well but suddenly ends with only part of the history told. Nothing about the harbour, the ferries, the market, much of the old town, the geology, the landscape, the sea, the wildlife.
What exists is well presented but why so limited? The upstairs has a slightly bizarre "exhibition" about the Commonwealth, where each country is "represented" by one object.

What a lovely little museum this turned out to be. As we drove past it looking for somewhere to park I liked the look of the building, as it has some age to it, but did wonder what kind of a museum it could possibly be in such a small space. I'm glad it proved me wrong. I spent more time than my other half examining the exhibits, which is unusual, and the top floor showing the Roman exhibition was wonderful

We visited whilst on holiday nearby.Although the museum is quite small there are interesting things to see. Our young son thoroughly enjoyed trying on the Viking Helmets and Shields and using the arts and crafts to decorate his own Viking. We all found the display interesting and informative. The lady on reception was friendly and helpful.
