We didn't get to go inside but didn't really want to. This is a very ugly building right in the centre of town near the water. What a shocker no matter what the alleged purpose was meant to be. It looks like an overgrown shed...More

Ugly building obscuring the beach. Surrounding attractions are many, however: the bridge, watching the tide, the ice cream shop across the bridge, the art gallery across the road..
