visited yesterday great place for all the family. Staff very helpful and really enjoy telling you about the herring fleet that used to be there sadly not any more and what it used to be like long ago. Well worth the £4 admission fee.

I don't remember exactly, but it wasn't very much and it was well worth paying a little to experience the most comprehensive museum I've seen in a long time, if ever. You will not be sorry you visited.
