Went through the history of Steveston with great interest. Many cool artifacts and eye opening facts about not only settlers (Japanese) but also their unfortunate plight during WW2. A great little spot offered at no charge.

I dropped in to ask about the town, etc. Whilst asking about the museum the lady turned and locked the door so I could not enter into it. Guess hospitality has a time and place.
