Wonderful small museum with an engaging mix of different kinds of art, and some history as well. We especially enjoyed the grounds and the fun and engaging sculptures as well as the beautiful views.

Small but exquisite. The building constructed in the 1960's sits low and easy on the site next to Narrow Cove. Large windows open to the coast and sea views. The sculpure garden and physical setting is worth the trip

Enjoyed seeing the lovely garden (even in the rain) inside there was an exhibit of Allison Rector's paintings which we enjoyed as well as sculpture by local artists. It is a small museum.
