The museum is well laid out and has numerous exhibits. The dialogue boards are very informative. There is a good theatre with a very informative film about "Old Tom"- a local legend.

Small local museum. Well laid out and interesting. Includes not only killer whale information, but also WWI, WWII memorabilia and the local community. Worth the visit to learn about the local area.
