I know it was the end of November but it was very disappointing. There was very little open, including the aquarium. It was not easy to get a coffee. Car parking was easy and there were other sightseers around with nothing much to see. As...More

Lovely little museum packed to the rafters with artefacts. Worth popping in for a visit and chat with staff/volunteers as they are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Spent a very educational 45 minutes visiting the museum . Glad we decided to visit. Free entry but please donate something - it's worth it

Interesting history of the village, there's a lot more to see than you would expect. Lots of nautical items, as to be expected. Couldn't believe it is free - though of course, donations are welcomed. Well worth a visit.

Just didn’t expect a museum of this quality in a small village. This gave an interesting history of the village, with many artefacts spread over three floors. It’s free, though donations are welcome.
