  • Very small, had some interesting facts about the area as well as some weird stuff like a blue whale embryo, old medical equipment, as well as heaps of old photos depicting the whaling origins of the area. It was free on the day which was preferring as I don't think it would have been worth an entry fee.
  • A very small museum that charges an entry fee. Has good history on Picton, but would be much better if it was free/donation like other museums
  • Top place to visit. great history
