“Great little museum”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I was not sure what to expect but was surprised at how nice not only the museum was but also the surrounding little park. Wheelchair access possible around the building and in the park.
Within the museum, space is limited!
Period costumes abound with the employees.
The stairs upward to the light are steep and one would expect. The resultant view is pleasant and one is able to blow the old fashioned fog horn at the top. Do give it a go!
Not far from Lanes Privateer Inn by the bridge.
Well worth a stop off.

“Small museum well done”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This museum stands at one end of the town walk, on the riverside in a park at the end of a residential street. The museum is very small but packs in quite a bit or info. The town walk is great and worth going to the end if only to view all the architecture

“small but interesting”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

There's a video that can be watched inside the lighthouse that gives a good sense of the lifestyle in the "old days".
