  • From the golden age to modern age appearance for Bush in the well where the Pacific Highway showed a quick stop to take in the view, even a decent Museum.

  • Enjoyed the bird exhibit and tour at Old City Hall. There were some excellent old photos and a nice history video too. The art in the LIghtcatcher was childish and the room was dark and cold. Couldn't get out fast enough. The children's play area, however, looked to be a paradise for young kids.
  • We certainly don't visit this local icon often enough, but when we do I am always pleasantly surprised by the friendly, informative & quirky docents. They make the experience just a bit more memorable. This last visit we were treated to excellent views out of the upper turret overlooking Bham bay while bright god beams skittered over the water under a brooding sky, sorry I didn't get photos ;{)
  • Beautiful "green" building, very artsy and good exhibits.
  • Awesome Christmas trees right now, but learned a lot about the history of the area! Great info!
  • It's a fun Museum especially to take the family to
