Popped in today - had never been although I live fairly locally. Excellent displays of local history, including old shops, fishing, lifeboats, local and natural history. Friendly and welcoming staff. Well worth visiting.

When we visited there was a temporary display about the first world war. It's located on the seafront promenade so easy to find and open from the beginning of March to the end of October. There is...

Run by volunteers. What an interesting museum crammed full of local history of life boats, going back over 1,000 years. Worth spending a few hours rain or shine. Number 1 for value and information.

Nice to be able to get really close to the exhibits. It was hard to imagine what conditions were like on those lifeboats....all volunteers. An excellent place to... More

Small museum with mainly RNLI exhibits. It is good to be able to get so close to the exhibits so you can really imagin the effort and fear the men must have met having to put to sea in stormy seas. Other exhibits include boat building equipment, household wares. The upstairs area had some early century local items an an... More
