  • Lots to see in this museum, provides good and balanced historical background for the area but not too crowded. 
  • Nice place, not what I expected. The exhibits were very limited. It seems to need some care. I don't think I would recommend going 
  • It's more of a hall way exhibit that you would expect at your local town hall. It is nicely done, just small. I will have to say that I was enchanted by the light house lamps, they were amazing.
