Lovely little museum of local history, well presented. Good info on historic fishing industry and shipwrecks. Something for all ages. Staffed by friendly local volunteers. Worth a visit.

A small but fascinating museum. Lots of interesting exhibits well presented. The lady (volunteer) on duty when we visited could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Suitable for children. Allow an hour. Free. (Only the exceptionally mean would not to make a donation.)
